    I've upgraded a bit. My old shop can be seen is on page 5 of this thread.

    My wife and I built a house this past summer and with a new house comes a new shop. Still just a part timer/hobbiest and still in the baesment, but a little more room. I'm standing in the middle and here is a picture of each half. Sorry for the blurred pics, was testing out the panoramic feature of my phone.

    Codi's shop is fantastic not only because of the great show room but the work area is huge. Especially when I consider my wife gave me a corner of the basement LOL.

    Thanks for compliments guys. If I get too many sittin arround, I give them a piece of sand paper and a deer form...Or a broom. It normally gets them out the door...I normally only get a bunch sittin arround when I'm skinning deer or turkeys, It gives them a place to go and get out of my way....DC

    Some nice lookin places. Glad to see you got some more space now Kurt.

    Here's my new shop and building. Its still in the works but probably 80% finished. Closed on Oct 31st (peek of the archery season and just before gun season) so its been crazy tryin to work on shop and get mounts done at the same time. Not ideal timing but couldn't pass the opportunity and price. Kind of a mini strip mall. Have two tenants now a chiropractor and a hair saolon on right side. Left side is open with anothe 2500 sq/ft with offices and a large room and lobby. I'm in the center vaulted area and back shop which is connected. Still need to ge a new sign, mantle on the stone, trim work, office window, and some other finish work as well as cleaning up and organizing the back shop.

    Thats one of my favorite parts :) Pretty much a free place to work besides maybe some utilities and once I get more renters I'll be making money on it. The 2 that are in there now have been for over 6 years and neither are going anywhere and their spaces are very nice too. Thanks my space couldn't have been set up much better for what I wanted.

    Nice shop Kyle! Maybe you can use all those doors as bases or something. I had a few in the shop that I used behind wall mount birds. Add a hanger and a piece of driftwood and you have a nice background/frame for birds, fish or small mammals.

    You could do all sorts of things with those. Wish I was closer to you.
