This Week in the Shop: A Quiet Place

20130723_180909This project was for my mother.  In order to do it though, I had to build a woodworking shop for my father.  Interesting how that works out.

All told, this project cost under $50.  My father’s garage stuff collection netted me tons of scrap wood for the work spaces, paints and some hardware while my uncle’s garage stuff collection provided the wood for the benches.  I brought my own tools to Virginia for this adventure.  Lastly, the creek bed provided free rocks for the garden.

I carved my mother’s favorite Bible verse across the crossbeam.  1 Corinthians 13:13 “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”  I was able to get the last phrase to fit.
