“Winning the war one battle at a time.”

I’ve pretty much put on hold any woodworking projects until the dungeon workshop is organized to the point where everything is put away and I have at least a gambler’s chance of finding things when I need them. With Christmas two and a half months away, it’s imperative that I get to that point as soon as possible.

I’ve found over the summer that studding up ‘false walls’ over field stone was a good way to reclaim this useless space. The stone wall in this picture was always dry, so it made sense to upcycle the last of the table tops I made for my father’s Estate sale this summer; stand it on end and place it between studs running vertically from ceiling joist to floor. The construction has unexpectedly provided needed support for a loose joist, too.

We’re getting there.

Thanks, Lee. I posted this picture over on my Facebook profile. A couple of friends thought I had built a grandfather clock until they clicked on it to enlarge. I wish! :D
