Robert,
We all do that it's part of the mysticism of turning different woods. Grin Grin  NEED MORE WOOD.  smiley=beer.gif

Of course you know in about a week a need will arise for that 96,383rd fitting.  Grin  Still, chances are it'd take less time to go to the store and buy one than it would to sort though them all to find the one you need. Wink

+1, especially if you've moved.

I don't think it's possible to find the part you already have until you spend hours looking for it, vist two or three stores and pay too much when you finally do buy it.  LOL

And as soon as you've put it to use you'll look over and see it sitting on the bench or shelf in plain view.  Happens to me all the time. 
Cool

Nice.  I made my first real step towards finally getting my shop how I want it.  I borrowed a trailer yesterday and piled it with junk as high as it would take it and I took it to the dump and said goodbye.  Maybe we need a mens support group called "We CAN live without 96,384 PVC fittings"

How big is your building?  Mine is 24' X 24" with an 18 foot door on one side.  And sadly up until yesterday, had room only for one person.  (But that's changed now)


Sorry I didn't answer you there Charlie, it's been a while since I came on the WR site, since I posted the shop pics.  Anyway, my shop is 24' x 20', and has a 9' overhead door.

I like the fact that your turning area is NOT CONNECTED to the house. 

I do all that I can think of to keep the dust out of the house (coveralls that I do not wear inside, hat, remove shoes before going in, and I thoroughly vacuum off before entering the house) but it somehow seems to find its way from the garage to the house  Angry.

This fact is not un-noticed, nor appreciated by my beautiful bride  smiley=slap.gif.

I think a separate building would help....
