Workbench cabinets

Newly built cabinets for storage and workspace. 6 bays of five drawers each, plus two open bays for tool storage. Still to do: build drawers and put a finish on the top.

The whipping continues

The shop is almost usable now. No real dust collection, but the major tools are in place and I have cut wood on the table saw.

New garage, new shop

I'm starting to whip the garage into shape. First step, lots of shelves for storage. This is 3 1/2 sheets of 3/4 plywood cut into 12 inch strips at the Depot, then made into boxes and shelves and hung on the wall. All vertical members are supported on a 2x4 ledger and so are very strong.

Sunbeams at sunset

Beautiful sunset tonight. Three sunbeams and glowing clouds.

Dining table

Inspired by Bruno Mathsson, I built this with a tigerwood top and wenge legs. 

It folds down to about 10 inches wide. 

And can open in different configurations

To seat four or six or

At full extension it is over 9 feet and can seat ten people easily, more if you're willing to be crowded.

Better view

We had the pine trees cut, and the view is much improved! The trees were cut by Kyle and Chris at "A Better Tree Service" (501) 773 eight544 . They did a great job and the price was right.

First sunset

We got to see our first sunset from the deck on Thursday. The sun is setting further to the south every day, and should be nice for the next 6 months or so.
