Things Are Coming Together

We returned to an empty workshop addition to our house. No appliances, no tools, only a folding lawn chair and boxes of supplies.

After lots of shopping at Lowe's and on Amazon, the boxes started arriving.

We found parts and instruction sheets.

I started bolting together the scroll saw stand.

John did a lot of that work, too.

The last step was to attach the equipment to the stands.

We aren't done yet, by a long shot, but look what we have so far. I have my own lathe for turning bowls.  If only I had some tools to do the work.  I have lots of wood.

We have a scroll saw.

As you can see, the lawn chair and boxes are still there. The workbench parts are on their way. We are excited to get started working there.

Oh yes, the washer/dryer, water softener and utility sink will we delivered and installed within the next week or two.


  1. Are those diamond willow sticks that John is working on?

  2. Yes. He bought a couple at the Woodcarvers Rendezvous in Creede this summer. The finished one you see came from our last trip to Alaska.

  3. Good start from skratch....

  4. How fun! I can't wait for a demonstration. Oh yeah, wood. It's still in the RV bin.
