NEW HOBBY

The Den is now going to be called "The Mill House Studio" and I'm putting up shelving to display all of my bowls and vases. The floor is made of Ash, the walls are Knotty Red Pine, the ceiling is Tongue and Groove Cedar and all of the trim is Black Cherry which includes 8 1/2" baseboard and Crown Molding.

Well, I haven't been doing much nature photography or much music for that matter, but I have been staying busy. We also gave up RV'ing so I decided to take up wood working. I have 80 acres of mainly bush, so I decided to buy a band sawmill. Then I needed a place to keep it out of the weather so along with some help from friends I built a 40' by 40' pole barn. Of course the sawmill doesn't take up all that space so I had to go out and buy some tools to fill the space; mainly from KIJIJI as that's a lot cheaper. I also thought there should be a nice little room that a person could just sit down an relax or drink a cold one. Along about this time (2 years ago) I broke my neck (C2) and had to have a titanium screw inserted but somehow my head got put back on a bit of a tilt, so I ended up calling the place "THE LOOSE SCREW MILLING COMPANY". I'll attach some pics.
