The floor veneer pieces are a pleasure to use and come from Graham Simpkin in the UK. His website is http://www.dollhouse-miniatures.co.uk/ and you will find a great range of flooring items. I just glue them down, give them a light sanding and three coats of spray varnish.

I have taken a number of classes over the years and learned some techniques that made this shop easy to put together. I have always enjoyed my classes with Ray Whitledge and in one specific class, he demonstrated how to use his table saw. I have experimented with my own saw for awhile now and have used it for a few of my projects to build shelves. As this room box is not large, I wanted shelving all across the back wall. I painted them with a gloss marine oil paint which gives a lovely shiny finish.

I have made a wood shelf to match the flooring and the back wood shelf pieces.
I am close to completing this project so hope to show you it filled shortly.
