Used stuffing boxes as roll holders
We have been on a full court press this past month prepping the Global HQ for two big events for family and friends. More later on those. Nothing like an event to get stuff organized. All this while boats are starting to need the railway and getting ready for summer. Today some more images of stuff being dolled up, and aged to rebuild the clutter look that any decent boatyard needs to embrace. The only “issue” I have is the need to art direct to much. But the good news is all that is temporary, cause one project and all hell breaks loose and she begins to really feel right.
I have become a plumber of sorts. Like a Plumber in bad sorts. This is the bathroom.
And Bam, after two tries I figured it out. The old…yellow toilet was leaking and would flush randomly.
I painted the bathroom walls, cheap 1970’s wood panels.
Its small. No hot water. But sure glad its here
Old Reedville can labels from the many factories here back in the day
Gotta have a pin up calendar in there! This is a local one from 1951. Thanks LOWTIMERS for the find!
Me and Mr B in a place to P
We have also been working on the new old workbench area. WOW, those workbenches are amazing and balance out the work area.
The day the workbenches were installed
Added some cool pine boards found in the wood shed. Old raw cut planks.
And starting to install some of the older tools in areas. The entire shop is now one large organized tool box..ish
Yesterday I installed a very cool set of Benjamin lights found in Richmond. And yes I rewired them.
The vibe is getting there.
This is the wall across from the workbench wall. More of a gallery wall
The planer and walls behind are starting to get groupings of art styles.
New small shelves added to other work areas and stained to match the older wood. Functional art. Maybe a better term is Dysfunctional art.
Time does stand still here. but man oh man it sure takes a lot of it to make it that way. LOOP ALERT
