Scenes from my shop.

Finally took some snapshots of my shop. It is a 1700sqft wood frame, stucco building that is finished on the outside the same as our house (CC&R requirement). I plumbed and wired it, installed the air system (3/4" PVC pipe) and dust collection system (4" plastic drain pipe w/ copper static ground wire inside). The first photo is the outside. To the right are two doors into the three car bays. One has an 8' door the other is a 10' door. Straight ahead is the paint booth with the air inlet filters visible.

The second photo is looking at the three car bays. The Pontiac and willys are in the first two and my king cab pickup project is in the far bay. You can see the pickup bed standing up to the right of the picture.

The next pictures shows my pride and joy - a hydraulic hoist in the middle car bay. Welding station/steel work bench is in front of the Willys.


Here are two shots of my wood shop section showing the dust collector a I scratch built, air compressor & band saws (I built the 12" one from a single sheet of plywood and 12" cooler pulleys. Works great!). Door on the left is to the commode and door on the right goes into the paint booth.


The finals shot is of the spray paint booth, just on the other side of the wall with the air compressor. See door into the wood shop back right. See the 3000cfm cooler blowing out with filter pads on the outside that vents the painting fumes. Plenty of light and a drain in the center of the floor so I can wet sand and wash down the shop prior to painting.

That's a great looking shop, the willys looks mean on the lift. Ia this behind your house? How far is the truck from being a driver? Very nice, it looks like you put some thought into the layout. Dan

OK Willys, the shop is very nice, but how in the world do you have time for hotrods, woodworking, and model cars?

Dinger; got my powder coating done so can start going back up on the wheels, get the body on, paint etc. Should be on the road this fall, God willing. Yes, the shop is just behind the fence where you dropped off the front end parts. Roll out of bed and I am in the shop!

Milo; no, that fridge has my gas cans and welding rod!

Kevin; ceilings are 10' and yes, I did have to build that vault in the rafters to top out the hoist. Though this was a better solution than building a shop with 12' ceilings! Just hope no county building inspector stops by to chat! For that matter, they don't know about the hoist, water system, or wiring either!

302; since you asked, I also make a lot of commission stuff that eats into my important rodding time like a doll crib and high chair of cherry and mahogany with a couple dozen turned spindles for my grand daughter's 2 yr birthday this month and a curio cabinet for a raffle fund raiser for the Cancer Society next month. Built it from mahogany using a Wood Magazine plan.

Came out pretty nice if I do say so myself.

I am driven to get stuff done. The older you get, the more you realize you mortality and are driven to produce. I also have tried to eliminate sleep which is a HUGE waste of time. I have it down to abut 4 1/2hrs/night but can't seem to get below that.

Man, oh man....

Thank God I don't have a shop that big. Cause if I did, I'd be divorced, paying child support for 2 kids.

Naw, that's just the chick in the magazine article. I didn't get a good photo of my cabinet before I delivered it. My wife is MUCH better looking that that!
