I recently posted a link to a series of photographs showing how my shed was. Here is a link showing how a week’s hard work has transformed it. A Google account, which is FREE is required to view, this is because it’s for the eyes of forum members only.

Thanks guys for your positive reaction. The last shot shows that the mounted log was only partly for effect, as you can see, it’s almost a vase and the mess on the lathe and floor prove that it’s the same piece!

Just checked out your Google page. You have to stay orderly with all that equipment in that space! Guess you store materials in a wood shed?

That’s right Thomas, previously the woodshed was stacked so high with large size lumber that i, at not much taller than 5’2” had to keep bent over to avoid hitting my head on the roof. Because my furniture making days are well over I knew that most of that lumber would never be used so I invited a friend over with his truck and he took it all. That made room for what was stored in the work shed. Some had to remain in the garage.

Your home page says retired from consumer electronics? And your furniture making days are over? Space issues? Or the stuff is too heavy to move? LOL!

I’m finally building my tools which sat in the shipping boxes for at least 7 years. I am getting more organized but I will never be this organized. LOL! Bet it was a very mixed set of emotions to let it all go?

Just assembled my 17 ” floor mount drill press yesterday and now the last assembly is my dust collector. What is ironic is they are all new and discontinued. LOL!

Thanks for the views.

Yes Thomas, I spent 50 years in consumer electronics, more than half of that time operating my own business, something like the last 15 specializing in the repair of video recorders. During this time I still had a hobby shed and although I didn’t have a great deal of spare time I managed to make all kinds of furniture for my son when he married, things like bookcases, entertainment unit, bedside cupboards etc, etc. When my grandchildren came along I built many pieces for their bed and play rooms. These days with a defibrillator and two stents in my chest I avoid heavy lifting and so restrict myself to small projects. The trailer load of Jacaranda logs shown were brought to me by a friend who knows how much I like to work with Jacaranda. It is of course all too heavy for me to handle as shown but I have another friend who is due to take the trailer into the bush today with his big chainsaw where the noise and mess won’t effect anyone. It will come back as bowl and vase blanks, also boards, all ready to seal with wax and wait for them to dry out in the woodshed.

dry out in the woodshed.

II was in electronics before psychology. Had long hair and a beard and they kept me in the back at IBM. LOL! That’s the three piece suit days.
