Imgp2413 - Wooden Cabinet for Glass.jpg
Wooden Cabinet for Glass Storage303 viewsThis cabinet has been sitting under Deane's workplace for 5 or 6 years and so we snavled it so I could use it to store my lampwork glass rods. It is 2.3 mt high x 1.08 mt wide x 34 cm deep and only just fits under the ceiling and boy, did the guys have fun getting it in there. ...and then getting it upright. Thankfully they only took a couple of tiny pieces of paint off the house in the process...

My Jewellery Table256 viewsThe table was originally an old radio outside broadcast table which had turntables, a console and cartridge machine in it. Hubby covered the holes left by the equipment with pine and there you have it.

My Hot Head setup256 viewsI attach my torch directly to the bottle via a Primus Adaptor. These adaptors are made especially for these torches so you can get them from anyone who sells lampwork equipment.

While I was totally looking forward to receiving my Oxygen Generator, I was NOT looking forward to having to clean this mess up...!

The bookcase will stand next to this which means I have to swap all my glass around so I don't stab myself on the longer Bullseye rods...

These broken beads will be given a new lease of life one day. Fusing, PMC and Polymer Clay will all play a part.

August 2007 - Glass Storage area rearrangement156 viewsMoving the bookcase to here meant all of my glass rods had to be rearranged. The 40cm rods which were overhanging the left side shelves had to be transferred to the right side so as to avoid the possibility of nasty accidents involving cuts and stabbings...

August 2007 - Lampwork Bench155 viewsSee how clean it is!!!
All there is to do here (apart from mess it up with glass rods and tools) is add a hood to the Ventilation. (Not necessary but it will look a bit tidier.)

Creation Station197 viewsI am still tossing up whether to keep using my Creation Station or getting rid of it. I am finding it to be a bit intrusive to my work area/tool placement. I am trialling a few different positions for the arm rests and I have found this to be the best so far.

CRM_9_-_Second_Stage_-_Get_Hubby_to_assemble_Purple_Pantry_.JPG
Stage 2: Get Hubby to assemble Purple Pantry.133 viewsI am stoked that I found this pantry in this colour. On collecting it from the back of the store tho, the guy tells us that it is the store lighting which makes it look purple and that it is actually white. DOH!!
But yay... Under my lights at home it is still purple, so I am happy. :-)
