It’s not much, but it’s a start. I cleared out space in our goat barn (at least until we need more hay for the winter). A solid-core door on two sawhorses acts as a workbench. A small collection of hand tools is stored underneath in a quick pine toolbox that I built last spring. Some were my grandfather’s. Some are standard hardware-store tools that I’ve picked up over the years for various projects.

My goal is to slowly work my way into a more permanent setup as I learn, with traditional hand tools based on 18th century practices. I’m an American Revolutionary War re-enactor, so I can mesh the two hobbies together.

Update: 12/9/2016 – Had to move out of the hay storage area and into an even smaller space. I cleared out the barn’s old tack room and set up space in there. It’s quiet, but cold (it was about 20F degrees this morning). There’s no power, but the light is good during the day.

Well, like you said Elroy.
It’s a start.
