Andy's Workshop

08/01/2016 19:36 Australian Central Standard Time (South Australia)

Another little project that I tackled this year - turning the messy carport into a nice workshop. I always love to produce something and the long-term plan is to build wood-strip canoes or kayaks together with my children. I prepared the room already for the gate when I did the walls a couple of years ago, so all I need is to build the gate, add a workbench at the end of the room and a rack to store the wood-strips. That's what we have now:

The room is a bit small, but fortunately big enough to have the gate on the floor
