« Part 19: Work is underway Part 20 of Life as an Amateur Woodworker series Part 21: Getting back into a routine »

Well…I have to admit that I didn’t think I would be away from the site for so long, it has taken a while to get the workshop up and running, and there is still work in progress, I need to organise an area for wood storage, and at the moment, I am looking at the roof area for that.

However it is still going to be some time before I can spend quality time in the workshop, I am still working flat out on the house, and unfortunately also having to redo some of the work done by the Builders, which is infuriating.

We are off on holiday next week for a fortnight, to unwind before we burn out, but I just wanted to touch base, and put a series of photos to show the workshop build start to finish.

I have got a major woodwork project coming up, I found that our Kiosko/Gazebo was not as safe as it looked, I had the Builders tile the roof, and with the weight, the whole thing nearly ended up in the swimming pool, so we had a late night emergency tile removal!!! As a result soon after the return from holidays, I am going to take down the old Kiosko and build a new one, just retaining the support corner posts.

I will keep a record of the build.

Stucco on the brick. Nice. Should be pretty cool in there? Oh yeah the two big wheels shop piece is a nice tool! LOL!

You caught it, which is better than being under it and catching it? LOL!
