Kenny, thanks for showing off what a one care garage slot can do. We have the same set up, a three car garage, (but is it really? I still don't see how a car is supposed to fit in the single car bay) and my digs are occupying a wall in the two car bay, and a portion of the wall at the head of the two car bay.

After seeing your set up, I am now thinking, hmmm, I can still have a dedicated area, maybe, right now our single car bay is loaded with boxes and storage cabinets, but I can change that!

 

Thanks for showing your space! I completely enjoyed the tour. Who made that yellow buffing wheel?

is there a staunch bylaw stashed away here someplace that shops must be spit shined before a picture(s) is/are taken and posted...

I think there is rule that covers this :lol: :D

 

Super shop Kenny! Great lighting over the benches and the garage door storage! I think I need to "borrow" the curtains idea.

First and most important Kenny, a formal welcome to TPW. Glad you found us. Having seen what has already come out (or into) your shop, I can't wait to what you're up to on a regular basis.

Great looking shop and layout even if is "surgically clean." :lol:

 

A couple of questions for you...what year is that restored Evinrude? '54, '55? Awesome looking and assume it purrs like a kitten based on it's looks?

Is that a gang symbol tossed across your door opener track or just drying some clothes?:cowboy: 

 

Thanks for being here and sharing your diverse interests. Truly enjoying your posts.

The motor is a 1947 Evinrude Sportsman 2hp and is what they call a "Barn find". I stripped the motor down, Inspected, repaired and restored. The motor runs like new. The picture below is a before picture.The red rag was unintentionally left up there when I was working on the opener.

That is so cool. I really like your embellishment of polishing all the various parts vs repainting. Really makes a show-stopper out of it. I bet you get a lot of looks and inquires on that? Excellent restore.

Was just messing with you on the rag.:P

Nice shop paws.That 2HP Evinrude is cute but I doubt it would buck the tides here on the Merrimack river. Welcome to the forums.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
