Good progress today. All the pieces for the sink cabinet have been planed and cut to size. Amazing to see the transformation of junk wood into something functional and nice 🙂 The pieces of the base of the shower stall are in finishing … initial layer is drying and looks nice.

Today I put the shower-stall project on hold since I couldn’t go much further without doing some finishing and assembling (which I couldn’t do because I didn’t have the finishing materials) so I dove into another woodworking project – also water related – a cabinet which will support our sink.

Started importing and tagging hundreds of pictures that have accumulated in the camera to tell our story – preparing to start blogging again 🙂 Now a […]
