Paneling ...

As the whole workshop is supposed to be paneled, I decided to make my own paneling because buying it would have been to costly.
So I took some dark wood (not good enough for furniture) I have in stock and cut it to length and width
Then, with my circular saw and a special blade, I made a first 0,6 mm groove on both side :
The second groove is done 0,6 mm ahead and bit higher :

 Because sanding would have ruined the grooves, for cleaning I used a razor blade which can be a great tool !
After painting and lightly aging, here is the completed paneling :
 And now, back to work because I must do a huge quantity of this wood paneling ...
Have a nice week end and stay tuned !

The workshop

Back to my house !
And before having completed the two previous rooms, I began to organize the largest room of Lilla Hyttnäs : the workshop. This room is located to the right of the hallway.
And because it is a huge room, I decided to create several spaces. So I made a kind of platform and an alcove in front of the fireplace.
Here are the very first steps of the workshop :
