Shop Art : The Stanley Tool Guide
Well, lately I haven't been putting in much time working on (or in) my shop at home. Rather, it's been a long push to get the school shop up to speed. I'm happy to say it is now very close to being finished. I'll post some pictures soon in case anyone is interested.
There was just one problem. I had one wall that was way too blank. It needed something, but I just couldn't decide what it was. Then I found the perfect shop art to hang - "The Stanley Tool Guide". It's from the early 40's and is both practical and decorative. Well, decorative if you are a crazy, hand tool fanatic I guess.
I took it apart and framed the pages. Here are some shots - not the best quality unfortunately, but I think they show what I like about the prints.
The whole wall - and yes, it's pink. Got a problem with that?
And some detail shots:
