Hello everyone.I have been so busy with my gardens since spring that I didn’t take the time to post here.Now that all the fall stuff is done and I have time on my hands here goes.
I moved into this home last Nov. 30.It was the first snow storm of the year which lasted for the whole winter.(lol) So I needed a workshop to spend those cold days doing something.There was just a big empy space in the center of the basement with a rec room on one side.So I started to build a workshop.
The first picture shows I needed more room.(lol)

Starting the Workshop

Next I took half of the rec room wall down and moved it to make a small rec room and the other half into workshop and built a small bench for my band saw.Then I put an L onto the bench and added a table in the new part for painting.Now I have a very workable workshop.

Wall is Moved

Room for Painting Table +Band Saw

Added the L to Workbench

Then I needed a bin to keep small pieces of wood in.

Good morning PaBull.I haven’t changed anything in the shop for quite awile now but I have been busy working on a feeder for a good friend and a small bird house and feeder that I am going to donate to the long term care home my mom is in.They want them for a draw to raise money for activities..And I finished the penguin in the xmas photos.I haven’t done any refurbishing lately but after new years I want to start on the kitchen.Nothing major just a makeover with paint and paper.

Thanks Dusty for the update. Looks like you have your work cut out.

I see some of the birdhouses on your workbench in the first picture. Looks good!
