My brother over at Mechanish crafted these great steel legs from some drawings that I made. I routered out a spot in the bottom of my window bench to allow the plates to sit flush with the bottom of the bench.
|Testing out the t-nuts that I installed so that the brackets can be removed for shipping.|
|Unfortunately, as I started work on installing the t-nuts to the other side, I discovered that I had routered out the area for the bracket on the wrong side of the line I measured—time for some repairs!|
|A reminder for the future.|
|I started working the transition piece for the shade of my Through The Forest Lamp—it's made from a vintage jello mold tin that I cut and bent to form the shape-I had a lot of fun experimenting with this.|
I've posted a couple peeks of my new studio space over at CoRK, but thought I'd post some more pics of the space-it's still a work in progress, but it's great to have plenty of room to work amongst so many talented artists.
|A wide-angle shot of the studio-I'm slowly cleaning and replacing the windows to let in more light and enjoy the view-when I moved in, there were all completely covered in grime.|
|Here's that great view—and the trains run by regularly :)|
|Another side of the studio.|
|I found this old door in the corner of the warehouse space and turned it into a spot to hold some of my hand tools.|
|Here's my area to draw and plan out projects-I painted the wall with chalkboard paint for sketching.|
|Here's the before, midway through the chalkboard wall repairs, it was a mess.|
|My wall of treasures...oh the possibilities!|
|More treasures, I found this ladder on the curb one morning while walking the dogs and carried it all the way home. I think my free MDF shelving is going to need replacing soon though, it's really sagging (darn that Florida humidity!)|
|A little lath detail on one of the workbenches I built.|
|I can make a lamp out of those rulers, right?|
