United States

This is an exterior shot of my shop. It is 56’ feet long and 25’ wide. The interior is an ongoing project, which will eventually include a mini-apartment with a toilet, shower-tub-whirlpool, a finishing room, and a 56’ X 16’ primary project area. The shop overlooks a four-acre pond, which borders Mark Twain National Forest land. I am working with an attorney now to make sure the property goes to the use of military veterans after I am gone. It will be called Camp Valhalla. One of my first projects to make a ‘Camp Valhalla’ sign to grace the entrance to my property. If you are in the area, give me a call and stop by for a visit.

Don, this is going to be a really nice shop in which to work once you have it finished. And its location is almost too tempting to get anything done. You have a gorgeous view from the shop and if you get tired of woodworking you can always step outside and wet a line.

I am looking forward to seeing more pictures as your shop evolves. This is a shop that I would enjoy working in.

Wow, I wish I had that view, and that amount of shop space lol. Thanks for the tour and if I am ever in Pomona, Missouri I will be sure to pop by for a visit.

Very nice property, building looks like it will be a great space to work in. Very inspiring way to look after the vets who are often forgot once all the parades and flag waving is done.
