    Welcome to 303

    Dear Tod,
    you talked me into it, so here we go.Attachment 1831
    This is new to you but it has taken me almost 15 years renting this space and frequenting it most daily to fill it like it is. Attachment 1833 It is a hobby shop, a design studio, and artist's (me) playground and a cabinet/furniture shop.Attachment 1834 It is a storage shed, an art gallery, and a place where visions become tactile.Attachment 1835.
    More later.

    OK enough of the teaser, now lets see the rest..

    Looks like a place where lots of stuff gets done, Shaz. Your shop organization reminds me somewhat of mine, except a lot bigger, with more tools and WAY more wood. (I hope you don't take that as an insult, considering my apparently winning entry in the messy bench contest.)

    I agree with Don, howsabout some more pics?

    Hey, with that monster sized fan sitting by the main door... why is there dust on the floor? Seems to me that if you fire that sucker up you'd create some pretty major suction. Better tie down the off-cuts.

    Shaz,

    Denise and I both said "Wow" when we saw those pictures. Looks 'worked in' and that's a GREAT thing!

    Share some more pics...seeing a persons 'mess' helps us better understand the mess maker...

    Thanks...

    Thanks Shaz. This looks like the kind of shop where a lot of good work gets done.

    Do you have a layout plan by any chance? If so, I sure would like to see it.
    Cheers, Frank

    Hi Don, and Oh Vaughn..
    Me thinks it does look like your place and hope you would feel welcome here, you would be. Oh and congratulations on that fun messy bench thread, you really have a mess , Since I don't how to isolate segments of quotes, nor have I the knowledge to include more than one quote with a response in a post we will do it this way for now.

    Dear Tod,
    We are in this together, you know that, it is what we do. Some look forward to retirement to do what we do everyday. "I guess we are living a dream."

    Sometimes it seems like a nightmare, like with Steve's misfortune, but he grabbed ahold and headed up that next hill. It is what we do.
    So sure you could teach me a fewwww things.

    Hello Art,
    Real cute, but you are right it will move stuff.
    It is on all summer and it will blow the @&5%%$&&$(6*&*^% around. Oh yea about that dust,you have four possible choices
    A. I am waiting on the dusty floor contest photos,
    B. It has been cold and we haven't needed the big boy
    C. Did some work for Dusty Hill and if he comes over thought he would feel at home
    D.My only claim to having a wood floor
    As for the cut offs and drops... A real possibility
    Enjoy,Attachment 1856
