OK, perhaps I've let things go a bit...

You can't swing a dead cat in Maine without hitting either a woodworking shop, boat builder, or tool maker, so I came back from my trip inspired to do some paddle-making. When I walked into my shop, however, this is what I found:

Vines cleaned off the screens, benchtop cleared and dusted, and the windows thrown open to catch the dry summer air. Short work to get it ship-shape:

Now that things are the way I like them, I've picked up a project I started a while back. I'll do some posts on it in the upcoming week and fill you in.

  2. O.O I am extremely envious of your workshop. If only I could wave a wand and have our garage instantly dusted, swept and reorganized....

  3. OK - how about full and complete details of your workshop? I'm thinking you should (please, pretty please:) tell us what tools you have, all about that work table in the pic - the whole enchilada.

    I want one like yours :-D

  4. I love those pictures Susan. They look like such progress was made, and the room looks both industrious and cozy. Can't wait to see what you make.~~Dee

  5. The before picture reminds me of my pickup truck. The after picture not so much, alas.

  6. All it needs is a kettle and a packet of McVities, for a nice cup of tea and a biscuit! BTW I didn't put two and two together - I just did a [p]review of your lovely book "How to keep a naturalist's notebook" on our blog - I'm going to set up my kit this weekend and see how I get on!
