« Part 42: A Slight Improvement... RAS Dust Collection Part 43 of Misc. Shop Stuff series Part 44: New Life for an Old Foreplane »

Had eight pictures and posted them to the shop wall a few weeks ago.

Thought that was the end of it, then found four more needing a home. So another frame to build!

Content of these is pretty cool stuff, too.

And then there were three sets of four…

As always, thanks for looking!

Nice addition. I prefer the staggered positioning. Looks great Smitty.

Very cool art, and nicely framed.
+2 to the staggered positioning!

I liked it. I mean, I really liked it, but then I realized this wasn’t really part of it,

Or was it?

Great shop pics Smitty, much better (and perhaps more wife friendly) than a bunch of half nekid ladies! So e sexy posters and frames!

Those are great posters! where in the world did you find them?
I like your “frames” they fit in with the “Shop Motif” very well.

Mike, they pop up on the ‘bay at times in addition to the smaller cardstock versions. These are approx. 14×19.
