Hey Paul, I went to your shop pixs and looked at the new shop going up….. nice… It’s coming right along fine…...From your pool deck, it looks like beautiful country where you live.Two guys working on the roof….is one of them you, or are you contracting out the job? It’s always great to have a place to work in and do what you love…. That’s the way I feel about my shop…. If you have time, take a tour of my shop….I’ve built a lot of projects and furniture in there….

Hi Rick, Thanks it’s coming along good so far… lots of stuff to go, the shingles & soffit go on the weekend the door is in, I put a 36” door on just incase. I’m the guy taking the pics…lol.. I contracted out the framing & sheeting, However I did the foundation & floor myself… hardest work i’ve done in 15 years… not alot of fun digging hard ground and lugging crushed stone & cement… but done now… I will handle the cladboard, the Resillent channel and drywall….. but I’ll have a pro do the plastering…. I have a friend that built a smaller shop, and did the plastering himself…. not a good job… and it made the place look like it was 30 years old instead of brand new. I checked out your shop!..WOW… you’res is what I’m aspiring to… I like the clean bright shops, and yours is the brightest cleanest i’ve seen here yet…lol.. I may pin a pic of it on the wall to keep me focused on the goal!... great job you’ve got done…. shops like yours are what convinced me to get my own, it’s 12 X 21… not too big… more than likely to small..hahah.. I’ve got to plan out my space management… I’ve got alot going in there… so far.. I have • Table Saw, • 2 Drill Presses, • Scroll Saw • Band Saw • Router table ( 3 Routers ) • Wet/Dry Grinder • 30” x 60” CNC Router ( under construction ) • Table Top belt & Disc Sander • Hand Planer
• 8” Compound Miter Saw • 6” Table Top Chop Saw • Grizzly 27” Vertical Mill • 14” X 40” Wood Lathe and I still want a Stationary Planer and a Jointer…. and A few other things I haven’t thought of yet!...lol.. My intention is to have a complete Wood-Working and Metal-Working shop. I also have most of the parts to build another lathe, I want it to be sturdy and accurate enough to turn some metal on there, and I may CNC it down the road…lol.. not enough days in the year I think!...lol… I’m in Newfoundland ( Eastern Canada ) although I am in the City we have a Green Space / Park out back so it’s nice. I’m doing my best to sound proof the workshop… because the way I am, is that if I want to cut aluminum on the router at 3 in the morning… I want to be able to do it, and not disturb the neighbours… so I’m a little concerned about that.

It seems you’re a musician.. Nice… I’ve been into music since I’m about 7 I have a full recording studio in my home, and a full compliment of instruments, From digital drums to Keyboards. I have 11 I think guitars in my collection now, and I play rythmn & lead. it’s another huge interest of mine…lol.. I justified all the equipment, as I do radio commercials for clients as needed. Part of the driving force for the shop ( the CNC in particular ) is I plan on building guitars, and other instruments.

Cheers

Paul
