    Shop Art

    Just currious if anyone else has any unique shop art? I saw this one on another forum a while back and decided to make one for my shop.

    My brother-in-law has a horse drawn road grater sitting outside and a bunch of antique tools attached to the side of his shop.

    Obviously a North American design as it cuts on the push stroke!

    I enjoy seeing pics of shops with antique tools or memorabilia on the walls. I keep looking for someplace to hang something cool-looking but something functional always jumps up there first. There's got to be somewhere to hang something that is 'just to look at', all work and no play and all that. Maybe over by the water heater . . . .hmmmm.

    This greats me at the entrance to my shop. My wife drew this for me, oh about 19 years ago when we were dating and she was a college student pursuing an art minor. She never did like it that much -- doesn't like drawing people -- but I've always liked it.

    This how hangs on my shop wall as a tribute to the sad state of business in America and the "I don't care attitude".

    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    That's cool Bart!!

    I got this sign on my shop. Kind of sums it up.

    I got other stuff on my walls that is certainly "art", but this is a family woodworking site and I can't share that here!!

    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    Hey, watch it. I have teeth like that.

    Looks to me like Bart Simpson meets the Jetsons.

    MJ, you're not really going to tell me you don't recognize Calvin' s alter ego, Spaceman Spiff? Its a world gone mad.
