Hi! folks,
Heres the newly remodeled shop.

Wow, Gene. This is a great looking shop. You have plenty of room in there and you have it well organized. I know I would enjoy working in there.

That’s great! Good job. I really like the slide show and seeing how you’ve organized things. There is something to be said about stepping back, reorganizing, and starting fresh. It will be neat to watch what gems are found as you slowly shrink the woodpiles.

Whenever my daughter works with me in the shop, she begins by saying, “Daddy, this place is a wreck!” Then she begins sweeping the floor. I think it’s part of their DNA. Meanwhile, I like seeing the wood shavings on the floor.

Enjoy it!

Wow! Nice looking set-up! I can tell a lot of work went into that but you will be able to enjoy it for years to come (and projects.)

Thanks for sharing that with us:)

Gene, My Friend!!

The shop looks absolutely fantastic!! I see you have two essentials that I must add to my shop- a coffee maker and a microwave!

So glad your health has improved and you are back enjoying what you love to do.

You have a nice well organized shop. I looks like the floor paint is close to sawdust color to me. Good idea!
Mine is just natural gray concrete. When I can no longer see any gray I know it’s time to sweep.

Gene, The new shop looks great. I like the idea of the pull down spray booth.
Look forward to seeing the new things you can turn out in there.

Wow Gene,
Looks like we’ve both been making some real progress. Good work!!!!!

Maybe someday I’ll get to see it in person.

Looks like you’ve got some great lumber to build some furniture with in your remodeled shop!
