Garage Turns Into Santa's Workshop

Garage Turns Into Santa's Workshop

A little cold won't stop me from working in the garage.

First of December I got the wonderful idea to turn part of the garage into a workshop. I have a small but nice set up for making photo frames.

A few years back I started custom framing photos and items for friends. I would design the best frame or shadow box to fit the needs of the client. It was in the past year that I decided I would teach myself how to build those frames and shadowboxes as well as design them.

Garage turns into a workshop quite nicely.

So of all the months to get motivated and to start a few projects, I chose December. I set up my table saw and miter saw, and started cutting away at the lumber. With a help and company of a friend, I had 5 frames down and a few more planned out. I had to slow down this week as temperatures dropped to well below zero and the garage isn't heated.

I have a few new stains I am going to try out on a few of my agriculture photos. I think they will work just fine.
