I'm but lowly on the DIY totem pole, but I think I'm moderately street and build smart, for a city slicker. i've contributed to patreon, but only a little bit thus far. anyway, i'd love to come and be part of a kitchen build! i think the kitchen and the textile washing (washing 'machine' / drying ) areas are the most important parts of the home, and knowing how to set things up in a way where cooking and washing is fun and effective, is critical when shifting paradigms and technologies in our daily lives.

(Peter Chan, you're not the biointensive garden guru, are you? It's a fairly common name.
If that is you, then maybe you would bring special super-powers that would relate to greywater harvesting and processing for safe use in kitchen gardens?)
Peter Chan wrote:Erica,
Yes, I'm interested in the kitchen workshop. I don't have an easy way to get pictures onto my computer right now since I got rid of my cell phone data plan, but I've:
1. installed 'linen shelving'...
2. made a shaving brush stand out of an old wire coat hanger. it looks pretty cool, and i saved $15 bucks buying one premade.
3. adjusted three treadle sewing machine bases so that they are properly adjusted for actually using with a sewing machine head and a leather belt....
4. converted a featherweight sewing machine to a hand crank --- ...
5. rewired a table lamp using parts from the local hardware store.
6. started the process of saving my car from the rust bogeyman, by sanding out the rust spots, and then priming them. ...
7. built wood kitchen shelving with a carpentry friend, and dabbled in re-chiseling hinge spaces on a door with a hand chisel.
I'd be happy to see if I could scrounge up some cotton towels and baskets. i'm def. a basket person, and would love to learn how to prepare basket materials and weave them!!! but it's always hit or miss finding baskets at goodwill. I would want more detail on size of baskets (diameter and height), and handle type (arch, or two handles on each side).
