I got the phone call today telling me that my long awaited shoulder surgery is going to take place in just over three weeks.
It will be the third crack at fixing an old injury & judging by past experience I won't be doing any sawing or hammering for a few months afterwards so all those little jobs that didn't seem so urgent just got moved onto the high priority list.
Having been a bit busy with other things for the last week or two I decided the workshop needed a good tidy first so it seemed like a good opportunity to take a few pictures & enter my first competition.
The room is a little over six feet wide by nine feet long with an under stairs area about three feet deep by two & a half feet wide.
Along with my tools it also contains a larder fridge, microwave, tumble dryer & freezer & is the favorite sleeping place for our two cats Pixie & 'ible.
In the winter it also tends to get washing hung out to dry so all in all it is not exactly the best workshop I ever had, that being said it beats the hell out of the gazebo I was using a couple of years ago.
The whole thing is a bit makeshift at the moment but I hope to gradually upgrade it all over the next year or so starting with a bigger better bench then replacing & upgrading the tools from some of the budget ones I have at the moment.
