Thanks everyone. It is indeed a beautiful space and I am so grateful to be able to enjoy it; the view is even nicer in the summer when the backyard perrennial borders are in bloom and the pool is open (that's the black tarp you see outside) ... soon, all will be white!

Thanks! The table is covered with ceramic tiles in the corner where my torch is. I also get the stuff flying and I believe it has more respect for the floor and rug than it has for my body!

The carpet is dark and burns don't show. So far so good for the floors. Oh .. people, don't believe that it is always that clean .... we dressed up for the picture of course.

What a beautiful workspace and all those windows letting in the light has to be an awesome plus. If you don't mind sharing your info on your exhaust system set up. I'm looking for something easy to set up in a window

Thanks! I do feel so priviledged to have such a wonderful space to work in.

Paula, my setup was inspired by the following page http://hotglasschick.com/stuff/

I ordered an inline fan (8 inches) on ebay. I got the adjustable speed control with it and do use it as I must say that when on full strength, the fan is almost too strong! As I had not found the same type of "funnel", I used adjustable metal parts found in the heating and ventilation section at Rona (equivalent to Lowes). I later saw some lampshades at IKEA that could be used for the inside "funnel" with some adjustments to the opening part that would connect to the fan. My terminology may be off but I hope you understand what I mean (I am francophone).

Lyne, what a beautiful studio! Even though you prepped it for the 'beauty shot', I'm sure it is also a wonderful space in the midst of creative chaos!
If you don't mind sharing, how did you make, or where did you buy, your glass rod storage units? I'm researching that problem for my own studio, and I haven't come up with a great solution yet. Thanks,
Betsy

Hi Betsy,

Thanks for the nice words about my studio. I love this space so much and I know how lucky I am to have this studio in my house.

My rod storage unit is very simple to make and not very expensive. I made a rectangular box out of pine planks that I had glued together in my wookworking shop, but any wooden box or crate could work. I then bought some central vacuum pipes at the home hardware store (approx. $7 for 12 feet long plastic pipes) and cut them in sections of approximately 10 inches long each to create the tubes. I cut one end of each tube on an angle so it makes it easier to have access to the glass.

I could send you or post a picture of the glass storage unit if you wish. Just let me know.

Lyne

Hi Lyne, I'd love to see your glass storage close up. Could you please post a pic? Thank you!

Hi Shelley,

Here is a picture of my glass storage. The wooden boxes still need to be painted white!

If anyone is considering using this type of setup, I recommend you measure the width of the plastic pipes and decide how many you want to use so that you can build your case to the right width. The piece of wood that you can see in the top case is to compensate for a measurement error and makes everything stay in place! I learned from my mistake and did better with the bottom one. The same method should also be applied for the height measurement.

Hope this is helpful.

That is really nice!! Looks like a perfect set up. I will have to look for the piping at the hardware store.

Hi Songe - I know this thread is over a year old, but I am in the process of planning/setting up my studio. I've ordered 2" pipe for my glass storage and it looks as though you are using the same size. It looks as though the ends are cut on a diagonal, maybe more than 45 degrees. Do you know what degree they are cut on? And what length did you cut the pipes? Thank you so much.

Claire

You might have to send her a PM if she is not tracking this thread any more.

I used the fence railing my self and I cut mine at about 9 inches long, figuring that most glass comes in 12 inch lengths and I park my rack about an inch from the wall for a little bit of wiggle room.

Oh, I didn't cut mine at an angle but hers looks like 45 degrees to my eye.
