I'm new here, so I started going back through previous threads. I was amazed at the talent of the people here. I was especially interested in things you guys have done around your shop and how to make it more efficient. I have a 32 x 48 shop with 32 x 32 of it insulated and heated, but it has always been kind of cluttered. I'm looking forward to using some of "your" ideas in my shop...keep em coming.

Welcome Steve...yeah there are some pretty smart guys around here..! And they are nice and willing to share ideas. I think there is something in the sawdust coming from the the Sawmill Creek that causes it...who knows?

Welcome aboard, Steve. I'm always amazed at the amount of pure talent and wonderful producers of ideas hanging around here...

'Sounds like a wonderful shop space. I sure wish I had that much room!! Show us some pictures so folks can help you come up with ideas for workflow and so forth. We need to know where you are "now" to better dream up things to spend your money, err...help you shift things around! :D

It is a great place Steve and expensive. Everyday these folks show something you have to have in your shop. They also want to see pictures of what you've been up to. I've given up fighting it and just keep buying and posting.:rolleyes:

Welcome to the 'Creek Steve! Neat place to wade and leave or take information as you deem necessary! Beware Tyler's friendly exterior. He's the leader of the Photo Storm Troopers. He and his accomplace Chris Padilla won't accept a gloat as an "Official Gloat" unless it is accompanied by photos. They will hound you until there are photos! Neat bunch here from beginners to skilled pros always willing to express their opinions or ask for advice. Again.....Welcome!
