    I really do know how to make a mess!

    For those of you who have never seen my first shop, here she is.
    This is where I picked up the 20 pounds of saw dust that is still in my lungs today.







    My Father started that doll house for my Mother and died before he could complete it. I took it home to my basement. (Indiana)
    It took me a year to finish it. All the doors and windows open and close etc. The plaque reads "From a loving Husband and caring son."
    My Dad made all of that furniture. I wish you could see it close up.

    I also whacked the end of my thumb off on a 4" Dremel table saw making that floor. To this day I never take my eyes off a turning blade.

    Very nicely done, Don. You should be proud of what your father and you did on that house!! Jim.

    Don, that’s a great collaboration on the doll house, any chance of some better pics?

    Cool stuff, Don. I'll be looking forward to seeing some goodies coming out of your new shop.

    Those are individual Steve. Thank goodness that was one of the things
    Dad had finished before I took over. What a pain!
    There were pieces of those little scutters all over his desk.

    Those were the only pictures I ever took of it Bruce.
    When Mom died my brother gave the house to his kids for his grand kids.
    I haven't made the trip up there to kill him yet but it is on my to-do list.

    The shop doesn't look that bad Don. In fact, it looks a lot like my old shop in the basement and you had the advantage of being able to open the door to lety out some of the dust. I just spread mine throughout the house.
    Cheers, Frank

    Easy Don, this looks like one of those problems that you should procrastinate over. Seems to me that, if you wait long enough, this sort of thing has a way of coming to it's own solution.
