Its a work in progress, there are a lot of spots I’m not happy with but its getting there.

The lathe table (bad pic) also hold my cheap drill press. Behind that is the lawn mower and other gardening type stuff, those shelves also hold my craw fish pot and clamps.

Here is a recent panoramic shot:

Thanks for looking!

What’s this you say? A shop that’s a work in progress? Such nonsense. Shops are static beasts, once done / always done. Right?

Love the cove end of that joinery bench, great idea. And the pic of the car, just outside the open door and looking in, is terrific.

Good post, nice shop log, enjoy!

Nice job…it’s coming along wonderfully….I know some expats from near Nola who are now living close to the SF Bay Delta, they call them “mudbugs”. There’s even a crawfish/crawdad festival that celebrates all things crawfish. Thanks for posting, Mauricio…................Wes

I think the green bottle on a coaster on Pic 1 is very appropriate for St Pat’s day.

Looks like a productive shop! Not only did I spy the shop log but TWO low angle planes. Looked like the 62 but I could not i.d. the other one.

Love it and the low angles on the bench ready to go.
Looks to be a wonderful space for creativity.

Nice setup sir.

Thanks everyone, its starting to take some shape thankfully. Thanks for the encouragement.

Yeah Kevin, I have a crawfish pot, I’m ashamed to say I haven’t used it yet (my cousin left it with me). You can get crawfish in Atlanta but its not the easiest thing. I use my crawfish craving as motivation to drive back home to see the folks.

Yeah Smitty, its probably a good thing that it is never finished. What fun would that be!

My wife used to park in the garage but once day she side swiped the side of the door and never parked in there again. :-)

Thanks Wes, sounds like you have some great friends. :-)

Happy St. Patty’s Mario and all!

Thanks Clayton, the other one is a #164, my only LN plane. That is the line of planes that need sharpening.

Terry, by mustang you mean the mini van? LOL. Sorry man, I’m not that cool but thanks for having that faith in me.

Thanks everyone else, your comments are appreciated. One day with more time I’d like to do some before and after pics.

What is that bench (pic 470822) to the right of the water heater? Spotted a disappearing stop, so I’m guessing you use it for crosscutting. What else you use it for? Intrigued, I am.
