I use one of the old farm buildings for my shop and the old indoor racetrack for the sawmill.

Barbara, how about posting some pictures when you get a chance?

Scott, I am not sure that pictures of my shop as it is right now will show more than a mess. I have a tarp between my turning area and the main shop to keep the heat in. The main part of the shop is full of stuff like a table saw workbench, etc. All covered with chunks of wood. Most of the floor too. There is not much chance of it changing soon. The area in which I turn is about 10’ x 12’. It contains a Oneway 1640, a sharpening station, shelves, a carving/burning table and lots of shavings. I couldn’t even take a pict of the whole thing without standing outside.

I could take some more pictures of the sawmill but that isn’t very exciting either. Maybe I have some old pictures. I know I have some of the workbench I made many years ago.

You guys are relentless. I found a picture of my lathe when the shop was clean. Our older daughter is a photographer; she took it. I also put a picture of my forklift.
I took some pictures today with my phone but that was a flop. They are very little and they pixelate when I enlarge them. I will try to get some more shots of some of the sawmill equipment with my camera.

Thanks for the pictures, Barbara. From the tools that you have to play with, it looks like you are having a lot of fun.

Hi Barb- I really like that forklift picture. Our agricultural area has some pretty ordinary warehouse forklifts, and that one just beats them all hands down. It looks so Efficient!

Sorry I didn’t respond. I used to use one of our big tractors with forks on it but using a tractor that way is hard on it as they are built to take most of the weight in the rear. This military surplus giant became available. It can liftnso much more than the tractor.
