Workshop Series 4 Righty Tighty Lefty Loosey!

I have tore up my workshop from the floor up.

Now I’m in the process of fitting everything back in plus add some cute;)

During the last series Part 3 or Buzz, Buzz….light I “wired” the shed {actually just ran a long extension cord…but did it cute}!

Now that I have power I can take apart my two old large work tables {they have been stored in the garage} and reusing the wood, screws, and nails rebuild them with space planning in mind.

Workshop Series 4 Country Design StyleI built three tables but gave one away when we moved.

Above is a picture of the tables in my previous workshop in another house.  Sorry for the lousy photo, this was way before blogging!

My plan with the two remaining tables is to rebuild one higher without a back.

The rebuilt table would fit over the other one. Both have locking wheels. The smaller table would have a shelf to hold as many tools as I can fit…think clowns in a Volkswagen.

Workshop Series 4 Country Design StyleThere’s a small part of the mess I made taking the tables apart.

Torn Overlay Country Design StyleWell it would be fun if I could get the mouseover to work!

In case your not sure what a mouseover is, it’s where you can move your mouse over a photo and the photo changes.  A click can be added too and you click on the photo and it changes once again.

So I’m tearing out the mouseover, heh heh!

Below are the two tables in action in three separate photos.

Workshop Series 4cNow the smaller table is inside the larger table.  This is how they will sit inside the workshop.

Using the router I created a place to inset a metal ruler on the larger work table.  This shows the two tables inside the workshop {smaller table inside larger}
