Located in Southwestern Ontario, (between London and Toronto), our shop is a work in progress.
I made a beautiful video tour of our shop but Picasa won’t accept video’s from a Mac… Go figure. So here are some photos. Not nearly as impressive as the personal tour.
Photo 1: “Come on down!! Enjoy my Mom’s paintings but don’t bump your head at the bottom. I’m only 5’ and I have to protect my head.
Photo 2: ”Take the 180 degree turn and follow RickieD into our Shop”.
Photo 3: Our Workbench – we built this first, right after the cement floor dried!! At the far end, there is a flip-up end so that we can get to the sump pump if we ever need to. Underneath are three really big drawers on wheels. They are sorted and marked for Carpentry, Plumbing, and Electrical. Rick and I were both really excited about this. No more “one stop shopping” for an article. You will also see behind the 2×4’s the beautiful old stone wall of the original house’s foundation. Midway down the bench is our mitre saw.
Photo 4: My Workbench – this is my little corner. (You can see that I got walls!!! .. and shelves (thanks to an old waterbed headboard). Under the leather apron is my scrollsaw. Just to the right of the sander, on the edge of the table is my Dremel router table. On the top of my shelves are a couple blowtorches that were my Dad’s, and we can’t overlook the beautiful sun picture that my first husband got from a Liquor Store. After I got two pictures he was told that they couldn’t give them away any longer. I guess someone got in trouble – but I got two beautiful plastic posters !! (Great for in the basement)
Photo 5: The Bandsaw and our wood. Enough said.
Photo 6: The Wood Shelf that we built.. and a bird house that Rick built a very long time ago.. I don’t know if he’s ever had it outside. And in the right hand corner, underneath the plastic are two antique rocking chairs that need to be fixed (and yes they are from my Great-Grandfather’s home).
Well, that’s it. I hope you enjoyed the tour. Watch your head again as you go back up those stairs.
