Rehab After Fall
« on: September 15, 2015, 07:04:18 PM »
It has been 16 days since I dove on my head on the driveway. Still hurting in left shoulder, and right wrist. Shop is in a total mess, and needs rearrangement of my hand tools. I need a handsaw and plane till to keep everything in one place, and semi dust free. The 10 gun cabinet that I had in the old house is now not in use, so we will save a few steps, and repurpose it!! After a close look, and some culling and selections, I now have a place for ten of my handsaws, and six of the smaller ones, tennon, dovetail, and flush cut  Below them, I now have all my hand planes sorted and stored where I can reach them as needed. All the wood bodied planes, and the boxes of cutters, and misc. parts for the metal planes are stored below. I think I will also store my jigs, water stones, and DMT plates in there too. All this work, and now I will have to come up with a system for all my chisels! I may use the Cherry wood cabinet I had my planes in. If I can figure a system, I'll post later.     






I will also need room for the timber framing chisels and slick, and the set of Buck Bros. chisels I use for" beaters"
around the shop. After that, it will be time to work on the lathe, as DEN DEN made a recommendation for a good chuck for bowl turning!!! Got everything ready, and some Mississippi Walnut crotches ready to try!!   Going to be a busy season!!   ;D ;D 8) 8) 8) 8)    Andy

Thanks for giving us a peek at your collection.  That cabinet looks like a perfect home for everything.

Hope the shoulder and wrist heal up for you.

Great repurposed cabinet! Use it up, wear it out, make it so or do without!

Get better quick!

Hope you get better quick.  I was looking at the pictures, and something seemed odd, but I couldn't put my finger on it.  Then I realized that none of your tools have power cords!  It made me break into a cold sweat.   :D
Anyways great looking stuff and it sounds like you don't have the time to be hurt. 


Take steps to save steps.

If it wont roll, its not a log; its still a tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not trees.

Kiln drying wood: When the cookies are burned, theyre burned, and you cant fix them.  So dont burn the cookies.

Sawing is fun for the first couple hundred boards.

Oh! Those poor homeless guns!!!  ;D

Well, your tools have a nice home, and they're probably more useful than guns on a daily basis.

Keep working on the lighter tasks for a while while you heal up. It will pay off when you're back to 100%.
