Hey friends hope all is well for you on this Tuesday.

I have kept working on my ongoing project of getting my new shop space together, and had the wonderful additions of my Girlfriends photography as well as some new auction finds in this latest portion of my project.

This particualr corner I did not have a corner stud area that I preferred for better mounting of the plywood widths so I used some of my salvaged pallet pine…...IT DOES PAY TO SAVE THESE SCRAPS..I was totally out of 2×4..and money was a bit tight this week….lol

A pallet out towards a random curb….a wonderful neighborhood find!

I really wanted to have some of Jenns great nature pictures framed and mounted on certain portions of the workspace and we decided to do them in a sepia tone to give a more rustic look to them. Thanks Jenn, wonderful work as always… oughta taste her cooking…haaaa…..thank god for a treadimill…lol

So plywood to the walls…..some hanging of the first of a few pictures and a new space for my two auction finds….Stanley 71 and Stanely 71 1/2…just recieved the 71 this morning…wonderful tools.

I cut out the thin pine backing piece and coped out a little style to it along with some poplar dowels for peg/hangers….and a new corner is taking shape!

I thank you for all of your wonderful projects and inspiration.

Keep things positve and thanks for taking a look.

You do realize this is only the initial set up. As you start doing more work in it you will be changing to adapt – believe me I know! Hope you have good times in there (didn’t see a stereo?)
