Renovation Equals New Shop!
In early April we started renovating and finally ended Phase 2 in early June. They say "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger".... When I get my strength back I'll dispute that claim. Below are a few pics of some planters I threw together and some bird feeders. The UGA bird feeders bought me a new jointer, plus an aquarium stand completed before the renovation began and a shot of a window seat for Marco to look from. It was built last weekend hopefully the first of many projects in the years to come.We used luan on the walls with a clear satin polycoat. The Luan has a nice pattern to it and we were able to do three bedrooms with it. The Polycoat is Min Wax's "Oil Modified" it has little to no odor, a big plus.
My much better half suggested with the renovation plan to move my shop inside the house. After realizing there wasn't a catch to it my new shop is 12x17 with a 6x6 tool closet. My old shop 10x12 now stores wood, the outdoor tools and my old small work bench. It's not full and has plenty of space to use for applying finish. Needles to say I am still thrilled and love my wife even more.
