    Cool My huge shop

    This is the one where most of the work gets done. The other 2/3 is the rest of the three car garage is where I store nost of my raw stock and all of the pieces I have to start restoring. I only work on 1 piece at a time. I plan to move a lot of the equiptment into the bigger shop when I get time to run power in there. This shop is 10x20 and the back open out onto a 10x20 concrete slab. I can work out there weather permitting. The bigger shop is 24x26. when I get moved over I'll proubly convert this one into my finish room. I'll then have a shop over 800 sq.ft...

    Don I have to give you guys allot of credit for working in tight areas. I have a 18x20' shop behind my home with a 5x5' cut out for a spray booth. I found it way to small to be refinishing furniture in and moved my shop to a commerical area 60x60'

    Dave,
    It was fine until I got busy. No I need the extra room of the larger shop. The problem is I am to busy to make the move..

    I guess thats the kind of problem most people would like to have.

    100 degrees?

    I just noticed that.

    You are a braver man than I am.

    (If I knew you better, Id say more insane than me, but the guys down in Texas that work in 115 degrees with 93% humidity take that spot in my book)
