Location: Woodburn, Oregon
Website:

I hope to learn a few things, get some ideas and share a few things with you all. Still need to fill out my profile, working on it and will post some photos of my shop as it gets a little farther along. I did pass my first inspections for electrical and structural...YIPPY. Just as a little teaser and to peak your interest, my shop is built on the the frame of an old mobile home, (got it for free, I manage a Mobile Home Community and it was one that was so far gone that we were going to demo it, so I saved the bones) that was 60 feet long, I cut it down to 48 feet and it is 13 1/2 feet wide on the outside. I am a novice woodworker but very detail orientated, have made a few things that I thought turned out pretty good.

Still working on the inside, it is mostly a nice storage unit right now, I will post some new pics as I get farther along. If your in the area lets get together and talk shop.

-- Steve in Oregon,

Hey there, thanks to Max, Jim, Splinterman, SnowyRiver and Skylark for the welcome and encouraging words. I hope to learn a few things, get some ideas and share a few things with you all. Still need to fill out my profile and will post some photos of my shop as it gets a little farther along. I did pass my first inspections for electrical and structure.

Welcome, Greetings from another Webfoot. If the you are into woodcarving, you have a outstanding dealer of bass wood and other carving woods, there in Dallas. Jerry Harris is his name. If you ever down this way, give a yell and we can set around a messy work bench and tell each other tall tails.
Richard.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

I do have photos of the workshop but the link is not showing up, or is it just when I look at my own home page it does not show up? Can you see the link to my workshop?

Thanks for the compliment. Like I once posted, a shop is a sort of maelstrom, things always changing. Yours looks like it will work great.
