Hi, due to baby's needs we moved in to a nice neighborhood near the Baltimore Museum of Art and Dizzy Izzy's.
The back yard is long, past the grill and the bonsai'd maple, there is a small building:
A shack in the back, that was home to cricket poop and cockroach egg-purses, with a cistern and compost:
I fixed up the door and put a lock on it:
Inside, I said to myself, now I am gonna take advantage of this occasion to create the ideal micro-cottage, with just the right features and nothing more, for my blog. you see, actions are much more important than words:
So I went to Ikea and bought some LED strip lighting specifically for a circuit-man's special nook near his lap, it is illuminating my gears, pliers, probes, and screw-drivers. Up top: soldering iron, a "scraps plate" and ventilation fan:
Ample shelving for Oscilloscope, parts bins, power strip, mixer, and instrument storage. TODO: my father's stereo will go on the instrument shelf, for the house needs a PA!
Did I say this shack is baby proofed? On low, a blackboard and chalk for lessons in the shack. Extra chairs for visitors, like my friend Jorge, or Carson, or Twig:
Here is more hospitality to visitors, and me alike. Several work-tables, lined up, a power source, amplifier, and ground cord which goes up, to the Garage Door Track, which seems 2 B grounded.
In honor of my favorite art moving company, I used part of their crate, salvaged from BMA dumpster as part of the Franz West post-exhibition, to construct the faceplate of this "delta bonsai" drill press stand:
With garage door closed, one can see the "akari lights" put there to dazzle a baby that is tossed in the air.
The landlords of this property had put a climbing wall back in this shack, and said to me that i could dismantle it. I kept some of the pulling points for exercise, but this wonderful meta-structure provided for interesting shelving options:
The face of the climbing walls were moved into the yard, and mulched beneath, to make a baby climbing practice wall!:
