Just my temporary confines. Want to make most of you proud of what you have. It’s a 20×20 attached garage that’s more like a 16×16. Because I am trying to put together tools for building big projects. They do not fit very well in here. As time goes on, you will hopefully see my advancements.

The last picture is some boxes, but not yet finished. Spare time projects.

Stay tuned for exiting updates.

You have been accomplishing much with the current shop you have Monte. I know it will definitely get bigger and fancier

So, is THIS where the “two boards” were assembled? Do you have the plans for your new shop? When you have it ready for construction, put out a notice of a labor need for your shop raising. I owe myself a trip to the Black Hills anyway.

Baby steps Monte! You might improve your dust extraction on the miter saw if you opened the window! ;-b Thanks for sharing.

Hey Monte – it may be crowded, but you sure can crank the work out of there…....One tip, maybe open the window behind the miter saw and you’ve solved one dust problem!!

Can’t wait to see the new shop…..keep on truckin’...

You are a “machine” in the way you put out projects. Wish I was that fast. You got a lotta great boxes there to pull from too ! Nice pics.

A lot bigger than my little area, Monte. And you produce many fine projects.

At least you have some covered (and protected) space to work in now. As they say … “It’s a start”

How you produce so many great, and large, pieces in such a small space is amazing. You are undoubtedly efficient and everything seems at hand.
How is the new shop coming? Insurance giving you grief?

Considering what your shop looked like after the fire, you’ve come a long way Monte.
And it hasn’t slowed your production down at all.
Thanks for the tour. (compliance noted :)
