Every time I visit this attraction I have to come and look at this shop for a while, even if they are not doing anything at the time. This place is close to Springfield MO, so I did notice a few Grizzlies in the shop. Though most of the machines are quite old and powered by the system of belts that spans the ceiling. I was impressed by the jointer in one picture. I always think it would be a great thing to do after my retirement to be able to work in this shop. So who knows where these pictures were taken?

Since you asked, this is the woodshop at Silver Dollar City in Branson. We had season tickets this year and have been there about 15 times this summer. I will be back there again at Thanksgiving and will probably go look in again. You can not go into the shop, but there is a viewing area from the outside. They do scheduled demos, but I have missed those. Also at Silver Dollar City there is lathe area with several old lathes powered by steam. They make bats and lots of spoons.
