I finally took down the old garage door and built a wall with a nice big window this weekend. Now i have plenty of natural light to see all those little scratches. The new area is about 10×10 . all comments and questions welcome. Hope you enjoy, i know i do.

I like the natural light. Makes everything look better when you are working on it and you don’t feel like you’re in a dungeon. Have fun.

So that’s where all those sweet turnings are born. Very nice. Love the layout. Someday….............

Looks like you’ve ‘turned’ that into a very nice work area. (Sorry, I just couldn’t resist.) :)

Keep up the good work!

Nothing like having your own shop area. Besides what’s the use of having nice toys if you don’t have a nice toy box. Ha! Looks great!!!!!

Nice space.
I purposely keep my shop dark so I don’t see the little scratches and imperfections…..that way I have an excuse when they are pointed out to me.

Great layout. Congrats on the expanded play area. Don’t get too distracted by the view.
