This is my garage workshop, which I share with my wife’s car. It also includes an overhead camera dolly, which I use when I shoot videos for my YouTube channel.

The mirror that shows whats on the screen is the coolest thing I’ve seen in a long time.

The shop setup looks very nice, too – with well organized dust collection system.

Too bad about that car in there, but at least it will roll out!

Thanks. By the way, since I’m new here – how do people usually reply to an individual comment? Should I just mention your name, or do block quote it like this, or what?

I have videos on how to make both the mirror monitor and the dust collection system. But I imagine most people here don’t need to see them, since the videos are very newbie-oriented.

And LOL about the car. Yes, I’m allowed to back it out, as long as I put it back when I’m done. :)

I think its up to you to quote, or just start with a reply that refers to the poster of the comment to which you wish to reply. I personally take the time to clean up the quote, and just delete parts of it that do not relate to the reply I am typing.

I generally don’t like to see a full quote of a long post that isn’t needed to give an understandable reply. But you do see that often. Another little peeve is when a member quotes a prior post, and then types the reply inside the quote box, which adds to the confusion of who said what to whom.

I am fortunate, but it was also part of my personal search criteria about 35 years ago that she had to agree with my position that cars were actually built to function in the outdoors,which is undeniable, and as such had no primary claim to indoor space.

In our current home, I added a veery nice carport that is a connected extension of the shop, holds two vehicles, and also provides a great, covered outdoor work space when I back the cars out of there, too. There is no possibility of putting vehicles into a real garage here.

Thanks, Jim, for giving me a good laugh. I’m glad your “search criteria” worked out for you. :)

I’m totally with you on the not quoting the entire post thing. That just gets tiring. And replying inside the quote? I haven’t seen that happen before, at least that I can remember, but that would be annoying for sure! Of course, I’ve been known to type “your” when I meant “you’re”, even though that’s a pet peeve of mine, so I always try to give people slack. :) Emphasis on the word “try”.

Just watched a few of your videos and you got a new subscriber. Love the efficiency of your shop and your upbeat attitude on your videos. I’m just about done reorganizing my shop myself after completing my 3rd (and final) DC MOD. Can’t wait to start making again.

From reading LJ, I’ve learned that many wives insist on keeping their car inside.
I find it amusing, but I also know that most women regularly find all sorts of things to make into an issue!

Believe me, my wife gives way more than she asks, so I think I can live with this little inconvenience. :)

Same here Dan. She puts up with a lot from me and when I have a really big project going, she willingly leaves her car in the driveway.

There’s nothing in the world like a wife who understands us, and loves us anyway. After 33 years of marriage, I still don’t know why. But I’m keeping her. :)
