People often look at me a little confused, as if they can't quite connect the picture of me and the way I act and behave with the tools and projects that I build. And I get it, woodworking and building is not a path I probably would have come to on my own. Sure I did wood shop in school when I was a young girl, but so did the rest of Sweden, and it really hasn't made that many Swedish women interested in using a table saw or operating a lathe.
Sometimes it's nice to switch things up a bit, don't you think? While I love using nice hardwood or quality plywood (Have you seen the gorgeous cherry plywood I’m using on my built-in- library! 😍), every now and then it's fun to go basic. And that's what I did with this project.
When we first found our property, one thing that immediately caught my eye as we walked around was a small 10x14 foot pre-fab shed which the previous owners used to store garden tools. It was nothing fancy, in fact it looked a bit worn, and in contrast to the two car garage which was to become the main shop, it was tiny. There is something rather intriguing however about a small space, and that little shed just screamed opportunity to me.
