Cozy Mark IV : Chapter 03
I'm also accounting for time/cost in this chapter of setting up my workshop. For
me, this first means finishing my garage (adding fiberglass insulation, drywall, painting,
adding some pegboard, etc). The next step will be building the parts described in
the chapter, including the work table, expoxy balance, glass cabinet, etc.
Pictures and commentary will go here as the work progresses. See also
time and expenses related to this chapter.

|Here's a shot of my jig table and work area.
You can see my thermometer and clock on the wall, my plans on the table, my
pegboard, etc. Note the walls have all been covered with drywall and painted.

|Here's another shot of the work area. I
made a 2nd work table, since there will be times when the jig table will be completely in
use. You can see the epoxy hotbox underneath, currently awaiting foam insulation and
This is just a two-car garage setup. I've got about 1/2 of the garage
occupied with the jig table and work area. The other half currently is home to some
bicycles, a lawn mower, a stand-up freezer, and a few other oddments. Not sure at
this point whether I'll need to build some kind of shed in the yard for these kinds of
things, or whether the current space will be sufficient. We'll just see as we go
