Default Shop pictures.

Everybody likes shop pictures. How about taking a few of your shop and letting the rest of us get some ideas. Not many ideas in this shot, but its been a slow night.

Okay, big toolboxes & a hippievan.
More coming?
Toolboxes btw, are something I've never spent much money on. I've just picked up old junkers here & there plus a small Kennedy rollaround, 2 or 3 Kennedy machinist's chests, some Gatemouth Jr. bags and a hodge podge of off-brand stuff. You've probably got as much invested in your boxes as I have in my handtools, boxes & all. But I've had to consider my user stuff to be portable, for the most part.
Looks like that hidden VW might be pretty cherry?

C'mon Cutter, I said it was a slow night. The boxes were just what I had on the tail end of the last shots previously posted. I was only trying to shake a few photos out of the rest of the crowd. So how about a snappy reply and a few shots of the new addition?

The boxes are a 25+ year accumulation. Don't own any Kennedys, but I do have a few Gerstners. I've a heck of a lot more invested in the tools than I do in the boxes...that's why I have the boxes.

The hippievan is a '64 with fewer than 50,000 on the odometer. Motor was a dealer installed warrantee repair with no serial #s other than the first letter...somebody messed up. Its waiting until retirement for the time when it will be cherry.

So how about those pictures folks?

Probably one of the worlds smallest glue welding shops around.

Wyoming, did you want pictures of the inside or outside? Hard to get a single shot of the inside!

With a setting like that, who would want to try for an inside shot. I know we all like pictures...just trying to pry a few out of you guys...Madam and Fluxy too, of course. The more the merrier.

Actually Paul, it was some of your shots that got me going on this. I miss seeing photos of other peoples work and shops. I'm still occasionally looking at the photo of your steel rack and parts pile covetously. How about some more pictures?

The WoodenBoat School & Magazine is located in our town. The 7th & 8th grade class spent two years learning how to build a wooden boat from scratch. Time, materials and labor was donated by instructors & craftsmen to the class. My neighbor offered trees for materials and the local organic hippie farmer brought his lovely horses and the class came out to harvest the lumber in a traditional manner. Then they had Stone Soup & homemade bread for lunch and went back to school.
