2. Office and Workshop
The place where some of the work gets done some of the time
It's not too fancy, at least not yet, but it is growing.
So far, we have a showcase, a workbench, a computer, a phone, and some tools.
Now all we have to do is to get organized.
A closer view of the workbench area.
The bench itself (lost beneath the clutter) is about 150 years old.
It belonged to Bud Brown, an area carpenter whose grandson, now deceased,
sold it to me with Mr. Brown's carpenter's chest (just out of sight
on the right).
The bench is 104 inches long, is made with two long boards (still straight
as the day they were made), and has the original vise which is only slightly
damaged. Restoration of the bench has begun with the turning over of the boards
to reveal a very smooth side of each. Now to fill a few holes, reattach the vise,
and repair some trim.
