« Part 15: Hot enough for ya ? Part 16 of Building my dream shop series no next part

Did not realize it had been so long since I posted.

Decided to go ahead and build a finishing room in the shop (temporary spare bedroom). Need to have a place for visitors over the holiday.

16×16 room with storage above. (will install stairs on the side as the next project)

As you can see, we have already moved a bunch of stuff up top.


Also, had time to build some Extreme Birdhouse Christmas gifts.

The “rustic” one is red oak, and the other is white cedar.
Now, the wife wants one – bigger!


Had a guest from Mexico stay with us for a while, and she wanted to try turning, so we got the basics down – and she turned a pen to take back as a souvenir.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Wow, that is a big blank for a Pen. :-)

How’s progress with the shop, Rick?

-- Brad, Oregon- The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first.
