Currently counting down the Hours to the new shop.

Tracking says the crate will arrive this Wednesday.
I'm Probably going to wear out the refresh button in the mean time.

Santa Ysabel will be our new home. Right smack dab in the middle of nowhere.
Will be building some tables and lighting fixtures this week. Pics will be posted here!

Oh man. I'm literally itching to make pointy things.

I will be doing some "practice blades"
Some basic knives and machetes in simpler steels to get my mojo back. Then back to the super steels!!!

The practice blades will be more inexpensive and posted here and Instagram. Only ones that pass will get posted.

I don't have any plans on A2 as of now. But I do plan on using some Bohler K110 (d2) and maybe some PSF27 .
I'm sure 3V will sneak in there too. Lol.

Got the grinding room ready for a new floor!!! Hope to add a new plywood floor tomorrow. Level is key! Right now it drops to the right. IMG_01102020_143127_(1080_x_1080_pixel).jpg

The crate arrived safe and sound. Was going to unload. Gonna wait till it cools down. Super hot out here.

Pretty cool!:thumbsup: The roundness, "porthole", and rustiness makes it look like you're building your shop in the barbette of a old warship. What was it, a small silo?

I think it was an old water tank of some kind.
Good job with that floor too. Must have taken a while to cut all those curves.

Everything there is so round you'll have to start making hollow handle knives :D
Cutting curves like that is awful. Not a fan of woodworking. The workbench was a test in patience. Gaps and not round. But the back of the tank is dented in one spot. Tons of fun to try to match the curve. But I got the first bench done and then the grinder mounted.
Hope to get the plug for the grinder swapped out this weekend.
