That is a very nice looking shop… Don’t know what it looked like before cleaning, but it sure looks clean now!

I’ve been doing a little “spring cleaning” of my apartment today… kitchen, living room, dining room… need to get to the “shop” room soon… getting’ a bit dicey in there.

I like the idea of this thread. It’s always fun to see other peoples’ shops. Especially since I don’t have a “real” shop yet. Helps to get ideas for when I do

RnG, would it help to know you make a lot of us look really bad and I think you suck?

On the other hand, if you aren’t doing anything next weekend, my shop can use some help… just sayin’!

Nice shop (and clean too)! But I really want that hog head! I’ve been looking for one for a long time. You’ll have to look at my shop vid to see my shop. The dog bed in yours is a nice touch as well (for the hog dog I assume).

I missed the hogs head also. After looking about the third time I got to wondering what you do for dust collection. Is it central or are you using individual shop vacs?

My hope was that I’d get others to post shop pictures here so we didn’t have to waste time on the poorly-functioning “shops” section of this site.

There is a State of the Shop thread already going here (not in the shop section) but it seems people are cleaning up their shops to post on this one. In that case mine will probably never get posted on this thread. LOL

I am envious of the organizational skills you guys have. Any one wanna take on another shop and help a fellow LJ out? Just need it set up once so i can keep it that way :)

Great shops to all that have posted so far!

Here’s a link mine – too lazy to re-upload the pics.

I like to see pics of shops too. I asked the mod if they would put a number next to each shop to represent the number of pics in the folder because it is frustrating to open the folder and not find anything. They like the idea but havent done it yet.
