Okay, I get it! I need a wood floor in the wood shop. I have been photographing for a magazine article (more on this will be in future posts). Within the space of two hours a light slid off the bench, which I caught, followed by my camera and tripod — tripods don’t work too well when two legs are firmly planted on the bench, and the third is trying to hover out in space, it nose dived into the padded mat I use, fortunately just a scuff mark. Next was a newly sharpened chisel shortly followed, in lemming fashion, by my plane which had managed to fall between the bench and the padded floor. Soft iron plane soles are no match for long-set concrete.
So think I am going to do something like this: ‘wood’ floor Just kidding! Stay tuned!
