My Garage Workshop Excites Me

It’s coming together. We have already filmed several videos and I’m adding the missing bits as we go. This week I have been building my shelves for the wall behind me whenever I had a free minute or two. It’s hard to workout why it’s called work. I have it together and now I am…
