Field Notes (cont.) - The East & West Walls
The east wall is broken up by a tall window in the center. On the left (north) side of the window are the remains of a built in chest of drawers. On the right (south) side is about 31 inches of wall space. This is the corner where I plan to put the assembly table. I've been thinking about putting a built in window sit in the window cubby. The dogs can't join me in the normite shop and they like window seats. I'll have to see - because of the window I'd have to design the seat so it'd still be possible to reach behind to open the window. It could be more trouble than it's worth.
On the left you see the north side of the west wall. On the right you see the south side of the west wall. Essentially, it's a wall broken up by two doors. The left hand door leads into a small room under the eaves used by Dr. Lovejoy as a records office. The right hand door leads into a long narrow room used by the good Doctor as an examining room. The room the pictures are taken from, the home of the Girl Galoot's future dream shop, was the Doctor's "birthing room." Cooler than grits. I plan to build a table between the two doors beneath which will reside a rolling cabinet with drawers for tools and a countertop enclosed on three sides to use in lieu of a a tool tray. On the table will rest a tool cabinet for planes, chisels and marking and measuring implements. The light dangling in a rather forlorn manner, at present, is the only source of electrons in the room.
