        Finally got all the outside walls studded of the machine shop and wood shop. The south wall of the wood shop will get a coat of paint. Then all the wood working tools get moved against the wall so I can finish the east wall and then start the divider wall between the two shops.

        Studding in place.

        Hopefully tomorrow I can get a couple of layers of paint on, if I can find my painting equipment.

        Until next time.

          The color is very light gray. A color Dave (aka deemery) suggested. Worked out perfectly. That'll be it for posting on this subject for a while. I'll get everything completed and take some final pictures to post.

          Until next time.

              Thanks Philip. Yes it is. Much easier to handle than drywall. Doesn't need to look pretty.

                It's been three weeks and I've got an update on the basement redo. I got all the luan up and painted in the wood shop portion. The studs are up for enclosing both wood and metal shop. That big gap to the right is going to be two 2 foot wide pocket doors. I won't have to worry about getting stuff out of the way to open the door. The opening is four feet wide so I can get lumber in and out of the wood shop easier. I still haven't decided if I will add a wall between the metal and wood shop. That's to be decided later once all the furniture is set in it's proper place. So here a couple of pictures to hold you over till the next major work progresses.

                Right wall painted. Back wall luan installation finished.

                  A quick update on the basement redo. I've got it done to the point of the major work. All the machines and assorted benches have been put into place. I think I spent more time rearranging the machines than doing something constructive.

                  So here's what you seen entering the metal/wood workshop, yes it's all in one room so to speak. I was going to put up another wall but decided not to.

                  All the wood working machines will be on shop dollies to move them around. This will give me more room as I work on only one machine at a time.

                  Looking from the metal workig area to the wood working area. The planer, jig saw and jointer need dollies made yet.

                  And if you look to left coming into the wood/metal shop this is the view.

                  So to the left you have a, starting from the back, you have a storage rack, lathe, eventual tool grinding table and drill press.

                  So the major work has been done. Now as I get the ambition, I'll add more shelfing to store equipment and materials.

                  Now I can get back to doing some modeling for a while.

                      Twenty years ago, I started the collection. The Grizzley table saw was first. Then the jointer and drill press. These are used to build the house cabinets. The lathe and mill were the last. I was interested in building 1 1/2" live steam. Got as far as ordering a complete set of castings to build a 3 truck shay.

                    Well it's been 8 months since the last major move in the Basement Redo project. This month I finally got around to moving the large 8 foot long by 6 foot tall by 18 inches wide cabinet without taking anything out. Dad built that for me back when I was a teenager. It's got to be close to 50 years old (holy smokes). It survived two big moves, from my parents' house to a mobile home to our house 20 years ago. Hard to believe I've had it that long and moved it twice.

                    So any way, how do you move a large cabinet like this by yourself? With pipe rollers and a long lever. first was getting the pipes under the cabinet. The next part was easy, just push it to it's final resting place, square it up tp other furniture and shelfs and remove the pipes. I've got it resting on 2 X 4 blocks so it'll be easy to move again, IF I HAVE TOO. Not going to happen.

                    Here a couple of pics of the move.

                    That's it for now. Have to contemplate what gets moved next.

                      I envy you having a basement with which to work in, here we have only a crawl space. It's much harder to work on pipe replacements too.
                      With all of the redefined space you have made for yourself, I hope you still have layout room. All in all, it appears you have a great place to
                      work on just about anything. Good luck. if it's completely soundproof, the little woman won't know you're even down there. LOL

                        You never got to see the inside the first time you were up. I think you're going to need a modeling day and take a trip up here. Besides rearranging the furniture (cabinets) there is going to be a lot of "stuff" that's going to the transfer station as soon as we don't have to go to the summer cottage anymore. I'm setting everything up so I can start on my relocating the HOn30 portion to the other side of the wall. I updated one of the threads I've got going with that info.

                          Not to sure if I'll paint the wall. Now I need some lumber so I can fasten it to the wall and get rid of all those legs that the spiders like to put up webs in. I'm thinking I may have a second tier over the top of the quarry for the HOn3 coal mine. Decisions, decisions.

                          Break time. More to come as I figure it out.

                            Glad to see you moving forward. I believe it gives a man a little sense of accomplishment when a plan comes together. Progress I guess is the word. Carry on.

                              Thanks John. The weather getting cooler and closing the camp for winter has a lot to do with it also. More time I can spend in the shop. No shop at the camp, YET.
