New workshop addition

I have a new corner, or wall, in the workshop. Made a quick bench out at my dad’s shop, using his power tools, mainly because I don’t really have room for anything major. Used two old drawers and built around them. Put the new bench in. Just put the stainless top on it. Hung some pegboard. Nice little home for the dehumidifier and fixtures underneath. Drawers for my sharpening items. I hung the pegboard from the wall with big brackets over the aluminum bar. At some point I can make storage up top, maybe 18″ deep of open rail shelving, for wood or lightweight fixtures, etc… Not much more I can fit in the shop.

A workout… with chisels

My god!  Hours of sharpening.  Now I know why I was procrastinating.  These are all antique shop finds.  So I went from grinding wheel, to diamond plate, to 1000 & 3000 water stones.  Flattening the backs of these was a bitch!  But hopefully I won’t have to do that again for a long, long time.  Only did 5.  But I worked on the others before, so hopefully they won’t be as bad.  Not sure how old these are, but I would guess they’ve never been this sharp.

Damn my arms are sore!
