    Cody and Amber got some lumber, and were given these coffin carry boxes. Will turn out to make some nice bench tops.

    Long day today. 4 benches built, and 3 bought at a closing factory sale this morning. Benches are mostly done. We need to cross brace at the bottoms, but they will work for now. Some will be screwed into the wall in the backs so that will help obviously.

    We hung some lighting today, and figured out where we wanted some tables. Leveled them and toed them in. Anything flat to the wall got that as well.

    Ladies first. Amber's area was arranged first and lighted. We plan on nice flush tracks for plugs instead of the strips we have not. But they work for now to get it lit up.

    [​IMG]

    One high table to cutting hides...etc. One low for sitting at to work on.

    [​IMG]


    My area. I might change something before I am done. I like to stand so high table for setting up handles and other things. A lower for sanders. Gets the work about chest level, comfortable to work at.

    [​IMG]



    Cody's area. I need to replace the window glass, so that will look different shortly,

    Up on the tables from opposite corners,

    My buddy Joe stopped by today, picked up something, also dropped something off as well,

    [​IMG]


    Joe works with neon and makes signs for a living, real crafty guy, does awesome leather work. He made us a sign for the shop. Looks like my Corian classic colors hehehe. It is so bright it was hard to take a pic of it in there.
