With Every Ending There Is A New Beginning

The Logan Cabinet Shoppe, as it was.

You might have seen my post from a few weeks ago on my new workshop. Well, it is with mixed feelings today that I am officially closing down the Logan Cabinet Shoppe. This will be my official last blog post under that name.

Recently, my family and I have made the decision to pull up our roots and make a permanent move from Logan Township, NJ to southwest VA. It is somewhat bittersweet, because we have put so much work into our current home, and made so many great friends here, but we know that this is the best thing for our family going forward.

The official move will take place at the end of June, however, we have already started the process. Over Memorial weekend, I disassembled the shop, packed everything up, and we began moving south. So I won’t be doing any woodworking in the near term.

The good news is that I’ll be gaining a 340 sq. ft. standalone shop. The added space of the new shop will give me the opportunity to do some things that I’ve only dreamed about doing in my NJ shop. However, the building needs a bit of work before I can move in. So over the next few months, I’ll be rehabbing the shop and making it ready for the new projects that I have in mind. But for now, everything is simply stacked up in boxes and piles awaiting a new home.

The move also gives me an opportunity to build a new web site.  You can find Bob Rozaieski Fine Woodworking at brfinewoodworking.com.  I hope to continue my blogging over on the new site once I have the new workshop all set up.

Thanks for your support for all of the years I’ve been doing this!  See you from Virginia!

Logan Cabinet Shoppes?

I just returned from a week long “vacation” at our new home in the mountains of VA. I say vacation but there wasn’t much leisure involved. Just lots of cleaning, and we still haven’t finished. But we did manage to get some time to walk our 24 acres.  

  

I also had a little time to check this out.  

Compared to my current shop, this one is over 3 times larger. It needs work, but it will make a good project once the rest of the house is done. We just got back to NJ but I’m already anxious to get back to VA.
