Hi Roger,

Pretty nice work for a non-carpenter. Great signs too.

What are the dimensions of your shop?

Thanks,

Ed......

Really beautiful shop. What kind of wood is that you used for the siding?

I'm jealous of that workbench.

Sorry, I meant what wood did you use on the shop to cover the frame of the building, making up the walls? We call it siding on this side of the pond.

Roger,

Your workshop is a splendid example of carpentry! There appear to be four standing walls covered by a roof, all of which are fine looking.

I would also comment the 'main bench' appears to be quite sturdy as well. Complete with dual vises and dogs.....

Thanks for sharing.
