Shop is Operational

One of the final steps in making the shop operational was the replacement of the original 1961 bench tops with new maple bench tops.  The original bench tops were made from discarded wood.  In this picture the walls of the shop see daylight for the first time since the shop was built.

Next, it was necessary to construct new level bases for the maple tops.  All of the support lumber was four by four redwood, making for a sturdy base.

Here is the completed results.  One bench is at a sitting height while the second bench works well when standing.  In the second photo you can see the original front door that I saved from the house when it was demolished.
