Got to put in some shop time today. OK, it wasn’t in MY shop, but I still had a good time. These are shots of the set building workshop at a local high school. My daughter is in a production of Seussical The Musical and I helped put the sets together today. I think I felt my heart skip a beat when they were just slapping 2×4s at angles with no miters on the end to fit them nicely. And they even drove the screws without pre drilling (GASP!). But we had a great time. Unfortunately I can’t show you any pictures of the sets or the performances, but here’s the shop we built some of the stuff in.

Ask for those scraps! I’d love to have space like that. Maybe not that high of a ceiling to have to heat though.

I’d get lost in a shop that big!!

I love having lots of scraps around! I watched a guy working in his shop throwing scraps into the wood burner that I could have made several things out of. Broke my heart!!! He just seen it as heat.

That kind of stuff makes me cringe as well. I’m sure once I out the call out to my friends I will be bombarded with free wood and scraps. But, right now i have to cool my enthusiasm because I don’t have room for any of it yet. Even when I get the shop set up, it will still be sharing space with the car and some other household storage. So I will have to try and not be too much of a hoarder.

“But, hunny. I need to go out in the shop longer so I can make use of all that wood I’ve gotten. I know how you hate to waste things”
