You have a nice looking shop. I like the design of it and the radiant heating is obviously a must for you.

Thanks for the shop tour.

Thanks for the kind words.

Bob #2. The 24” wide bar fridge is tucked under the counter along the tool wall. being so small its hard to keep it stocked but as a rule it has ice and brown bottles in it. Water too. Sometimes SMS, sometimes other beverages?

That’s a great looking shop you got there. I do see a couple of things missing. Sauna, whirlpool tub…

I’m jealous!!!! Not only for the generous space, but because you have a need for radiant heating!! It’s so hot here in Houston!!

GaryK…........the sauna is in a bay, one of four bays under the shed roof off the main barn/shop. The whirlpool is just off the back cedar deck at the pool just off the house right next to my Porsche and not to far from the Ferrarri on loan until the Bentley gets here

Al Kililan….........not yet

matt garcia…........I am not sure which is worse. To freeze to death in my own fat or to cook in it? jealousy is a double edged sword?

thanks again to all the nice comments

There’s no place like Gnome. I love the rustic look of this piece. Question Roman: Is the three sided piece on the bench an inverted top section of a related project? Looks interesting. Rat

The piece is upside down, easier to do the molding at the top when its flat on the bench. The inside exposed gables come off so that wiring and electrical plugs (GFI) can be done on site. The piece sits on top of granite counter which in turns sits on a hutch with a bar sink…............all for a boathouse.
