48 hours ago, this was our bedroom.

There are times in life where it just strikes you how lucky you are. This is one of mine. I am astounded that She Who Must Be Obeyed not only permitted me to convert our bedroom into a workshop but is quite fine, enthusiastic actually, about me taking over the whole of the living room soon too. (I was standing in the doorway between the living room and shop as I took this photo). The living room is about 3x as long as the room pictured, has a high ceiling and lots of natural light. It also has a whiteboard wall, so I guess it might be destiny :D

Now, to build a quick work table…. Sawhorses and a half sheet of ply I reckon.

Yeah, but…does it have spiders, multi-pedes, mold, mildew and excessive amounts of cobwebs? No! So there! :P

Lucky you. :)
