My new Workbench

Okay,  it's no bench, but my new place for nearly all my table saws and drills....
On Thursday I went to my favorite shop for machine tools and felt like a child on christmas........ There are so many things I'd like to have, but I only bought a new drill stand, a new proxxon handtool (my third, because I  like to have one on the small drill stand, one with a flexishaft and one with steel collets for extremly exact working) with transformer and some "toys" for my husband. Did I say "only"???
When I came home, I had no place to put all my new machinery. What a surprise LOL! On Wednesday I found, that I needed new dust masks. So we had to go to Bauhaus (a big DIY store in Germany), which is located directly beside IKEA - - - what a coincidence....   So we went looking for a shelf  - and found it.It fits exactly. 1mm more and it would have been tooooooo big. It took me 1/2 hour to squash it between the window and the wooden shelf, which I had to clear out first, because I had to shove it to the left as far as it was possible (3cm).
And because I was occupied with shopping and squashing, I haven't had the time to post. - and to make miniatures. The show in Gießen will be in 2 weeks. I think it's time for a little PANIC! But I want to make shaker boxes. So I needed this new drill stand and so one thing leaded to another.... but now I'm happy with my new work place and panicking because of too little time.
