It’s been approximately one year since I returned from Italy and opened my #studio door to survey the train wreck. Wish I’d taken some “before” shots, but I wasn’t that farsighted; all I could see were the options of a) throwing a match in the place or b) committing hara-kiri. (However, I did write one blog post around that time, “Enter the Studio”, which I just copied and pasted into my new blog - click the link in my profile for that). Well, all I can say is what a difference a year makes! Before I take a few days off of social media this Easter, I thought I’d share a few recent photos of some of the #projects I’ve been working on to try to make my modest studio space (1st early morning pic) a bit more organized. 2nd pic: Inside the studio, a segmented, rotating mason jar hardware storage rig, newly installed but not yet filled to capacity above the new miter saw stand/cubbie unit (3rd pic, also not yet filled – I want to make drawers on slides first). 4th pic: to the right of the cubbie unit, a shelf for water containers. 5th: wall #storage, and 6th, the back side of a three-part 4’ x 12’ mdf and Baltic birch panel I built yesterday for an upcoming collaboration with #floydtunson. 7th pic: in the yard, a portion of a recent haul of reclaimed redwood after a week of de-nailing, surfacing, and stacking/stickering. (Since then I’ve covered the pallets with corrugated steel, weighted with pavers, to keep them relatively dry). 8th pic: some of the wood prior to and after surfacing, to show the night and day difference that taking a fraction of an inch off the redwood makes. Finally, a couple bonus pics of a handy way to store our dog, Ruby, who otherwise takes up too much couch space.
