So, today was the day to move the workbench from the garage to the new shop. It is only 10 feet away but the hallway has a few turns and doorways that don't line up. Did I mention that the bench, even without vises or the shelf, weighs a a ton. Yeah, fun times.
The first step is getting it out of the garage and into the hallway. Not so easy. As I pulled the bench out I had to start to stand it on end. Luckily I have 9 1/2 ' ceilings in the back of the house or this would have never worked.
Now comes the real trick. I get it to the door of the shop and have to make the turn. Not only do I have to turn the bench, but start to lay it down as I turn it. Pushing the one end of the bench through a doorway and dropping the other end into the shop. Once I made the turn, the easy part was just pulling it into the shop.
At least now I know I can get it in and out of the shop without taking it apart or destroying anything. But, maybe this would be and example of why it isn't such a bad thing to build a 6 foot bench vs. building an 8' bench. Would of made it a little easier.
Not to bad overall. It only took me about 10 min. of work.
I should be able to get the rest(most) of the shop done today. Hope to have an update by end of today or tomorrow.
Just glad the bench fit and I didn't crush myself in the process.
Oh Yeah, the plywood floor feels really nice. Much much better than concrete.
