Bryan, OH 43506
United States

Our shop was built from a 1894 Summer Kitchen! It was originally attached to the house, but in 1914, was detached and spent most of its life as a small work shop for the farm. After new siding, doors, windows and roof, the inside was still bare old native timbers. So with the help of my better half, we insulated the walls and then instead of drywall, we chose to use elm cut from our own woods by my father in law!!! Very very heavy walls. The elm is over 1” thick. Our joke is if we get high winds or tornado, thats the building we are running to!

Our Wood Shed is now complete with just a few minor details to finish. But so happy to be in the new shop (1894). LOL

Nice use of the elm for interior siding. And that’s a pretty cool old drill press there too.

Thanks Joe, the best info I could find on the drill press was that it was made in the late 40’s to early 50’s. All I know is it works flawlessly and has a LOT of power!!!

Nice. Also good to see I’m not the only one with a drill press significantly older than me. Looking forward to more finished pictures as you move along.

Thanks Charles, and yes Matt, its coming along. Considering we would have been happy to be fully operational by December, being this far done is a good thing! Excited to be producing buckets in this shop for years and years to come!

I AM a lucky guy. My wife does most all of my finishing work and sanding. So yep, gotta give her a work station. And those panels are 1”- 1 1/4” thick solid elm boards cut from our woods by my father in law!!! Soooo heavy! Was a tremendous job by my wife helping hold them in place while I nailed and or screwed them in place.
