    Rainy Day+Lazybones+New Camera=New Pics...

    It's all cold and rainy here. Plus, I don't feel like working. Plus I got a BRAND NEW digital camera!

    I've needed one for a long time; it's a Canon A 520, and I'm just learning how to use it. Of course, it has instructions, but that's just...cheating!

    I've been working on my shop/studio for the last month or so, and got the wall mostly up (it's not finished yet, the plan is to add another floor-to-ceiling wall to the left of the door. Hadda do the door first.)


    anyhoo, here's how it all looks from the front door:

    Here's a view at the loft entrance. I found these 1940's doors at a construction site (they were putting in modern French doors.) A little sanding, paint, (plus anti-termite stuff) and some different hardware created the bi-fold type doors you see!


    When you go in and turn to the left, you see the drawing board in the next pic...




    (that's a sneaky trick to keep you looking!)

    Cool! And with the screen and lights it feels a bit zen
    I love your doors! But I love anything old over new when it comes to stuff like that.



    PS wish i could get anything around here together enough to post a picture... sigh i should be putting floor level down right now but I'm not I'm sitting here!

    Here's my new drawing board. I saw this idea in last month's issue of Fine Woodworking.

    Holy cow--ZERO floorspace wasted!! YEAHH!

    Here's the drawing board open; The top has precision bearings that ride in a routed groove in the frame.

    The frame has lots of holes that you put a socket bolt into which blocks the bearing, so it adjusts to lots of different angles and working heights...plus, it's really easy to use!





    (didja notice the tile floor? Whoo-hoo, I be stylin' now baby...)

    Oh, if I could get away with it Knot, I think I'd buy a big garage and live in the garage. The wife might have some issues with it though....sawdust and grease getting into her hair care items, the smell of petroleum products freshening the air....the kids playing with 1 1/4in combination wrenches and the pots and pans...

    Not to mention the lack of light au natural for her plants...

    First thing I noticed was those red doors, very neat.

    Here's a new shot of the kitchen area, since it's all different now (lights, tile, wall extension)

    Great stuff Todd!


    I wish I had half of your "do it yourself" project talents...well, at least half.


    I'm curious...what does the switch above the microwave control?
