A little bit of building work

I would have liked to bring you up to date with a lot of work done on my shop, but alas, it's very slow going at the moment. I am not working from a plan, nor was the person who designed the building in the first place, so I depend very much on the club meetings to finish each stage. We just plan the next step as we go. So, this is what I have done since last month's meeting: I have extended the front and side walls and fixed the long side wall. I've also finished the floor for the attic, but since I want to figure out what to do with the lights I wait with attaching it. It's perhaps easier to wait until I have decorated the walls and ceilings inside, because now I can reach in a lot easier. Anyway, here are some pictures:

It doesn't look like much, but while I am building this I am also learning some woodworking techniques. On one hand I regretted the odd shape of the building, but on the other hand it forces me to work very precisely. Not only did I cut out the pieces myself, but I had to learn how to use a hand plane to plane the angles for the roof and the walls. Quite an experience, I can tell you. :-) But, so far, so good. All the corners still fit.

Well, tomorrow we've got our monthly meeting again, so for me to find out what's in store. I'll keep you posted.


  1. Me encanta como te esta quedando, estoy deseando ver los avances.

  2. I think the shape is great. I really envy you having the chance to learn how to use all the tools.
