From the workshop

    I forgot to mention my feature interview at Amy's Creative Side .   Thanks for all the great comments and hello to the new followers from there.  It was fun!

 That woodworker of mine, Sir Old Man, has been at it lately.....working in the shop again.  He just put the finishing touches on a large pantry for our daughter.  After a few fits and starts on the design, he came up with a 2 piece design to meet the needs and requests for storage.
   First, there is the upper section of shelves with doors.   Actually, I think it would be perfect for stacking fabric on, but no, it is for food.  You know that necessity of life that our bodies require.
   Deana wanted flat panel doors...very simple to fit into her mid-century style decor.   Can I tell you how  long Sir Old Man agonized over these doors?  Let's just say they were his stumbling block.  Once he committed to them, they were done in 2 days at the shop!


   Doors open shows lots and  lots of storage.
  He made the shelves adjustable.


   This is the base of drawers.  The upper section is designed to sit on top of this piece and will be secured with a few well hidden screws.      I like the extra details around the drawer edge that Sir Old Man came up with.  I think maybe, he has been reading too many blogs and worrying about design details.












But check out the drawers....full extension too.
    Can you imagine how many spools of thread I could fit into one of those drawers.   A lot!  Again no, for me and yes, for Trey to store all those bottles of sport drinks!
   So, it  is another hit / success / and completion from the workshop.  Of course, now, we have to figure out how to get it loaded and delivered to Charlotte.  Soon!

   OK, Sir Old Man approved this post and will even accept the "buttoning pushing" digs that I included.   He is good that way.  Great job, dear.  Happy wood cutting, sawing, sanding, routing, planing, and all those other tools you use!

  7. When I first saw the picture before reading your blog I just knew that was a new cabinet for your sewing room. ;) What a fantastic job your DH did on it. I am always so in awe of the work that master woodworkers can do & just love hand made things. Now that he's got the plans down "pat" maybe someday you will get one too. :)

  8. I forgot to comment on your feature interview & it went really well. You packed a lot of good information in during the little time you had. I am slowly learning from you to sew without stress. After all, this is my hobby & passion & it should be the most relaxing thing in my life. As for the quilting police...no worries here...I don't care what they say about any of my work.

  9. Do you have room for one of those cabinets, maybe a little smaller, it's perfect for a sewing room. Lucky daughter to have that coming to her home even if she's filling it with useless food :). Great job Sir Old Man!
