and a more recent picture of the barn remodel.
picture # 1
Brians bench is to the left and was cut from a pretty large douglas fir (which Shrek milled), one solid bench top....5" thick, 33 X 72.
my bench (one on the right) was built by my wifes grandfather and she's plenty stout...2X4's stacked face to face with three 33" bolts keeping it all tight.
lots of knotty pine siding, a raised hayloft so the ceilings are 17' tall, and the opening to the work area are timber framed with rough cut wood using tendon and mortice joints and oak dowel pins to keep it tight (no hardware needed), new lights, new concrete, new entry way which deserves it's own photos. Gotta see it in person to believe. Come for a visit !
