Wood Street & Repairing the Flat File

We ventured to place called "Wood Street" to look for lumber and other building supplies to fix my flat file, which had one of it's upright sides torn off during the move. This is the main archway at the head of the street.

This is our living room / dining room, where Nick has set up shop to fix the flat file. This area will hence forth be known as a hazard area. Hard hats and protective eye wear must be worn at all times.

Unpacking Day!

Yesterday, Nick's freight shipment arrived, and this morning mine was unloaded. While my wooden flat file was the major casualty of the voyage, my beloved Poco no. 0 proof press made it safe and sound.
I saved the best for last and carefully opened the massive wooden crate Nick's father, Bob, built for the press. Seeing that the press has made it half way around the world with no problems is the greatest gift!
