Getting the shop back in gear

Hi folks,

 I've relocated back to NY from VA, as a result, I get to re-open my woodworking shop.

 IN no particular order.. this view shows the pile of boxes I have to sort through , plus my relocated wood racks.
 cherry and mid length mixes species
 cherry shorts
 Lathe land... my Delta Midi on it's stand with turning stock in and around the stand.

 Looking at the relocated and promptly filled lumber racks.... before the boxes got stuffed under there.

 lumber racks, shorts in the foreground, longer stock in the far corner.

here's a view as I'm cleaning...

Actually making some sawdust

Hi gang,
 I'm in the middle of actually Building something! When Lori and I moved down to VA last summer, our platform bed got disassembled... and never got put back up. Yep, doing the college/newlywed thing all this time with the box spring and mattress on the floor.  Finally bought some lumbah this week, and I'm about 60% done with building a new bedframe. It's going to be one of my 'signature' 2x material specials... overbuilt and sturdy with a couple of arts & crafts touches to it.

and since I know some of my Family Woodworking buddies wouldn't ever let me live it down, here are pics to prove I'm actually doing something...
