If you recall, when I laid out my shop, I had an elevated platform in the rear corner. Affectionately called the gallery, the platform offered storage space as well as a means to reach my lumber loft. Unfortunately, over the years, the floor space afforded to the gallery has been sorely missed. Having to move things out of the way to circumnavigate the shop was getting old. Not to mention the fact that the platform was becoming just another horizontal space to accumulate junk!
Well, I decided to reduce the gallery by almost half, gaining some 18 square feet of floor space. That may not sound like a lot of space, but in a small shop, that’s huge! I still have a raised platform with which to reach the lumber loft, and after culling my scrap bins, I managed to find plenty of room for the various cut-offs.
After a bit of rearranging, I can now walk around the shop with ease.
Time to get back to making!
