in the ceiling to avoid cutting holes over PoLA.
Luckily, the wiring work did not affect the areas by the layout, but my office had to be cleared out to allow the work to proceed.
In moving the book shelves around, I realized that I will have to rebuild them. The thought occurred to me that if I made new bookshelves, I could build a nice small shelf layout into them. The mind boggles at the possibilities. But, that is a project for later. For the present, we have enough power in the garage to run all my tools, as well as the capability to add a charger for an electric car, if and when we get one.

With the garage powered up, I continued to work on the desk for the telegraph dispatcher. The top, legs and frame are ready to go. I just need to decide if and how I can add a drawer to the desk. This was the first time I used the Festool Domino system to make floating tenons. It really is a neat system. It's probably too expensive to recommend for model railroad benchwork, but it sure makes nice joints. I may try some benchwork with this system in the future, maybe for a module frame.
