Workshop (8)

次回、この記事の日本語版を投稿します。

As faithful fans may recall, last year I moved and have been gradually giving life to a workshop.   In Workshop (1) I gave the workshop a heart by restoring on old bicycle shop clock.  In Workshop (2) I gave the workshop a torso by building a workbench.  In Workshop (3),  the workshop received extremities in the form of tools, and, in Workshop (4) and Workshop(5) I gave the workshop right and left hands by adding a Blacksmith vise and frame vise. In the previous two installments in this series, Workshop (6) and Workshop (7) the workshop received its first and second legs.
   
It is now time to give the workshop a name.  But before that a quick sneak peak.
Bicycle banners.
For those of you familiar with Japanese, note the use of old Chinese characters such as the「 轉」in 「自転車」(Jitensha=bicycle).

More on various displays later.  First the name.
To christen the workshop I hand-painted a sign in Japanese.

Still have a ways to go but will update accordingly.
