Work Space Upgrade

Heading into 2018 I decided to upgrade my indoor work space, which is really a converted computer desk in a spare bedroom. 1/2" plywood sheeting expanded the work surface and provided a "tool wall" backstop, and I built a small set of shelves. The new arrangement is sturdier as well since I added additional 2x4 support legs. Hopefully these improvements will help to increase my guitar output in the coming year. A blessed 2018 to all. 😎
