Very well done! Love the color. I have been working with google Sketchup for a cpl days and have started to make my outdoor kitchen plans. Nice shop you have! I’m jealous of all those clamps that’s is a collection you have going. Again very nice!

Very nice job. You set a standard to strive for. I’m just curious – could you estimate how many hours you worked on this project?

Very nicely done and looks great. I never have been able to figure out that google sketchup stuff. My computer skills do not go too much past email and looking on the internet. I just design stuff on paper and figure it out as i go

I didn’t keep track but I would guess approximately 160 hours.

Great Dresser, It is genius on your clamp rack. I would have never thought of using the garage door.

Looks like a million bucks.
