Grumpy. From the pin on the map you are out in the Ocean, But I don’t see any water around you shop. You on an island.

Great shop. Nice looking burls under your lathe.

Looks like you’ve got a lot going on in that shop. We’re looking forward to seeing some of your projects.

Grumpy,
Great looking projects, looks like you’ve been at the woodworking for quite some time. We lived in Australia way back when. Lived in Maitland North of Newcastle. We built an Aluminium Smelter in the area around the Hunter River. Great country, great people. Enjoy lumberjocks.
Regards,

Fred

Not lived in yet Thos. Not enough room for a bed & TV. Still get on all right with the Misses since retirement so not used as the dog house (Aussie expression).

Hi Grumpy,

I am getting around to some of the back posts that I haven’t looked at before so forgive my tardiness on posting a comment on your workshop. You have a nice shop and I actually see sawdust on the floor. To often people worry about posting pictures of a pristine shop environment but a shop without some dust looks like one that isn’t being used.

Thanks for sharing.

Now that’s what I call a workshop that is being used. You have so much stuff laying around. I just love seeing a shop like this on this site. Snooping around in all the various places to see what is going on inside the mind of this woodworker.

Nice shop, It may look a bit cluttered but I can bet you are just like me, if someone asks for something you can walk over and grab it.I like to call that ”Organized Chaos”. It’s after I spend a full Saturday cleaning that I have problems on Sunday finding my tools.LOL

Eagle, I once had a boss who kept his office so neat there was nothing out of place, in fact there was nothing to indicate he did any work. He came up to me one day when I was busy doing an involved project & had papers from A to B. He said cluttered desk cluttered mind. All I could think of was empty desk empty mind. LOL

Hey Grumpy, just getting arooound (joke) to checking your shop out. Very Nice Space, been meaning to build one of those angles slides myself. Hope your organized like I am, As long as I can keep the Misses from invadeing and cleaning-up while I’m not around, I can pretty much recall where every thing is. Takes me awhile to find things if she’s been in the shop (Ha Ha). Couldn’t live without her though, Quite sure your the same…..your brother in woodworking John
