    Pro Shop project gloat....

    Hi folks,
    I've made a couple other posts since yesterday talking about a job I just finished for a client. They have an indoor skateboard park/pro shop but the pro shop was too small so they rented a larger space and moved the pro shop there. I ended up building and installing almost all of their display fixtures. Here are a few shots of some of it....

    The skateboard racks that I built. They hold nineteen boards each and I built seven of them.





    Their shoe display rack. She wanted to use old skateboard decks but didn't want to just set them on shelf standards. She mentioned that she'd like to try to find some way to hang them. This is what I came up with and they love it....



    And here's a long board rack that I built....



    What do ya think?

    Awesome all-around. That's what I think. The shoe display stands out as my favorite, but the skateboard racks look perfect for the task, too.

    Thanks!

    Yeah the shoe rack is my favorite too. It took a bit of figuring to get right but I think it came out pretty nice.

    Well Rob,
    I can tell you and this point the Habs are my second favorite team. I'm just SOOOO GLAD that they knocked off Cindy and those stinkin' Pens.

    Thanks!

    Looking good. I also really like the shoe display. Very hip.
