Well, after much thinking and planning, we have finally decided to put a workshop in my mom’s basement. My mom and I have been trying to think of a way to get a workshop since I lost mine about a little over a year ago.
I am a chip carver/scroller and my mom does lathe work. I started this blog to track our progress in building and setting up the shop. We are using only part of the basement. The corner with the most open area. When it is finished it will be about 11’x11’.
So here are the first pictures of our adventure:
This is the corner we decided to put the workshop in.
Here it is with the walls painted and us bringing in the metal studs.
This is the start of one of the walls. We are planning to leave the space under the stair open for shelves for wood storage.
-- While teaching a class, a gentlemen once asked me: "When chip carving an intricate design, what do you do when you are almost finished and the wood breaks off?" I replied "Cover the kids ears."
