Well we finally got the workstation table built and installed this weekend. It will have three stations with lots of room! :clap: We had temporarily used two desks which worked but this is so much nicer.

We used hardbacker for the work surface. Don't have to worry about hot glass. We made it high enough so you can sit on a drafting stool or stand and work.

Note to safety police: Yes, the oxy and propane will be outside of the studio and piped into the studio ~ That's next. We had to get the workstation in so we know where to punch holes :eek: in the new walls for the line. We will have hubs under the workstation and quick connects so we can change out the five torches. Then we need to do the vent hood of course!! Needed to get the workstation installed to see what we need.

DH build a top and we carpeted it for the stained glass area

This is totally a dream come true.... Now if I could only finish getting organized so I can get to work and actually produce some great beadies :D

Leslie,
It looks wonderful. You all have really worked your tails off on it. It is so clean, wish mine could look like that for longer than the time it took me to clean it:rolleyes:

Awesome studio! My son is busy building me a glass storage unit. Maybe I can talk him into expanding my work area??? Please post pics when you get the hood installed.

Congrats on such a wonderful studio! So fun to watch it grow from those first pictures to what it is today. Sure wish I lived closer so I could become your new best friend and come over and play all of the time!
