This is coming out well ... your experts have sent you in the right direction.

 

A simple thought to consider .. a black and white photo has 256 shades of grey in it by most standards.

 

 

 

 

 

256 shades of grey? I thought Jim was working in "Fifty Shades of Grey!" :lol:

Time to add some details.

 

Here I have added a gasoline sign behind the drill press and a hanging rope on the shelf.

Some rolls of tape, hanging pipe wrench and a calendar.

A high school banner.

A tool box for bench on the back wall.

I have to be careful with car stuff. There were very few if any manufacturer stickers, decals, etc. in 1957.

A little more junk on the bench.

Wow Jim! You've really got the hang of this!  That last photo is just perfect. I'd swear it's a black and white photo of my grandfather's basement. Keep going!

Made some rags.  Kleenex and thinned out white glue. 

 

I usually make a bunch of them because only a few turn out to look like real rags when they are finished.

Added some more junk to the lower shelf.

Here is an interesting building session. 

 

I wanted to make a mop in a bucket.  That sounds simple.  Get a bucket add some bunched up string at the bottom and put a stick in it.

 

Well, I started playing around with the stick and string and I came up with a decent looking mop.

I could not waste this nice mop by sticking it in a bucket.  So i decided to have it leaning up against a wall. 

 

I soaked it in white glue and water.

 

I made a jig to hold it in place while the glue dried.

 

ep-vi.jpg

 

eq-vi.jpg

 

 

The glue is dried.  Now I have a leaning mop.

Now where did I put that bucket...........................

Cool, Jim!   But it needs a puddle of pooled poo on the 2x4 below it.    (Drainage, you know.)  ^_^

Jim, it's coming together nicely.  The broom handle looks a little thick to me.  And I think you should display it with the mop on the floor in a puddle of gunk/goo . . . I think it'd be more interesting that way.  Next to a grimy bucket, of course.  KUTGW.

Yeah, good idea.  

 

Say, how do you know so much about drainage?

Cranky:

 

The mop has to be up against the wall, it's designed that way. LOL

And that is how I would store it. Especially on a wood floor.

 

Good eye my friend, the handle was too large (thick). So I replaced it with a scale correct handle.

 

And I increased the puddle for Dan.

 

Thank you for your input guys !!!!!

This is a really, really great project work of art.  Truly inspirational.  I hope I am able to do something similar when I can finally retire.  My hat is off to you, Jim.

Filling up the rear shelf. 

 

First I put everything on the shelf to see how it might fit.

As I painted and glued down the items, their location on the shelf changes. 

This is because, as I work, I think more about where stuff would logically be put.
