    Larry's new shop pics

    Since Larry has fell behind in keeping us updated with pics of his new shop,

    I made my way over to get a firsthand look and take some pictures. It was dark by the time we made it to Larry's but with the help of Larry's new neighbors house lights the area was well lit up and had no problems making it out to the new shop after a quick first stop at the kitchen for some pizza and a cold soda.

    It is obvious that Larry put a great deal of thought into arranging his shop for work flow and space to work. Larry asked a lot of questions here on this forum about what people thought of different aspects of a shop environment, so those of you that commented had a hand in his design.

    I can remember some years ago going to a woodworking demonstration at a fellow woodworkers shop and Larry telling me that after looking at this guys shop and how well it was laid out that he might as well just give up......Well Larry, in my eyes you just made a shop comparable to the one you uttered those words about years did yourself proud bozz.

    Following are pics that I took of his shop as you come through the front door you can look around and see this.

    A peek into his office where he keeps tabs on all that goes on here at Family Woodworking.

    Inside his finishing room.

    and the last one in the finishing room.

    My camera was giving me battery troubles or else I would have gotten pictures of Larry's wood stash, air compressor and dust collection system....maybe next time.

    Nice shop Larry, I know you are proud to have it and it holds special meanings of having your family and friends have a hand in helping you, especially the time you spent with your loyal and benevolent main helper, your dad!

    Looks great, except where's all the clutter? You've got a lot of horizontal surfaces there without any junk on them!! If you need some useless stuff to scatter around, I'll send you some of mine. Maybe that way I can see my horizontal surfaces again.
    Again, it looks great. It is obvious that you planned things out very clearly, and implemented that plan. ENJOY!! Jim.

    You've come a long way since Septober Larry, especially with all the interruptions with neighbors, nere do wells and most importantly deer season. Well done.

    Thanks for taking the time to document the progress Steve. I do wish you could have gotten a couple of pictures of the neighbors place though.
