The “Shaping Bay”

Shaping Bay

It all started with planning where I would inish the blanks, spray / paint them, glass and sand … Basically, I needed a shaping bay that I could use for spraying, glassing and sanding.

That’s ended up being in our garden shed … It’s a standard 3m x 3m metal garden shed; not a huge amount of room. With the work bench on one side and the mower, edge trimmer and wheel barrow on the other … it’s a start.

I had a clean up and put up some “walls” with blue tarps, and acquired a few key items needed for the process (i.e. sander, sanding pads, paper, sanding blocks, stringer plane, etc. ) … then put in some ‘adjustable’ lights … and ended up with a ‘peg board’ on the back wall to hang stuff, which I then painted blue for the ‘contrast’ color …

Here’s a couple of pic’s of ‘the bay’:
