Home is where the shop is

Most of our posts center on Gypsy. Well, much of this last weekend was spent in the garage making parts. If you have been following our blog for a while you will notice that our garage is a far cry from the shop we were working in last year. Not to complain since we were out of the rain, but parkas are required protective gear. It is also sort of crowded in there and the light is dim.

Bill is marking out the door openings on the port settee back.

We worked on the settee backs cutting out the door openings. We also cut out the shelves that will go into the settee backs. You can see the templates for the shelves on the saw horse at the bottom left of the photo.

We have been using a guide with the sabre saw to keep the cuts straighter.

Guide clamped to the plywood. The saw is definitely vintage. It is at least 50 years old.

While Bill was making saw dust, Nina was cutting out vinyl to go over the foam in the lockers. Nothing better to give your house that new car smell.  Gluing it in is next week’s project. Right after the bunny and the ham.
