When I saw some of the HUGE shops people on this site have, I have to admit I was having 'shop envy'. Well, since Glenmore posted his shop, I realized we aren't all able to have very large shops and seeing the quality of Glenmore's work has inspired me to know shop size has nothing to do with quality work. I certainly know what you mean when you say it never seems like it's a large enough space, that happens to me all the time. I bet people would be very willing to help build Glenmore a bigger space....if I lived in the area I would love to....I would also love to visit you but finances being what they are....
Thank you for the kind words, they are always appreciated.
The only embarrasment should be that we that have larger shops and put out work inferior to yours. We have no excuses, thank you so much for sharing.....you've helped me big time in appreciating what I have and appreciating your skills.
I too live in a 'rental' situation. We live in a Co-op in Squamish...we don't own but it's like we own except we will pay rent until we die essentially, however it's rather cheap rent.
The shed was my wife's idea....I used to have a room in the basement for a shop...I'm so glad she had this idea.
The space is pretty good but I have yet to do any very large projects, they've all been small one...in fact my boss (read my darling wife here) has me making about another 7 of those card holders so I'll be busy for a while just on those. It's very hard to be able to work after a full day's work (I commute 2-1/2 hours daily), just too tired and that's not safe. However, the weekends are mine and I'm about to go out there soon myself (now what time is football on again today?).
Again, thank you very much for the kind words, they are always appreciated.
Just a thought....if you have the space for a metal shed....it's a really good idea...but one thing I found necessary and it helped a lot was to insulate it. It made a huge difference on the heating and cooling. Speaking of heating/cooling....the fan that I'm using I got at Canadian Tire (don't think you have them in the USA). It actually does a great job heating in the winter, in the summer it's about 75-90 F and it really is only a glorified fan so it still gets pretty warm in there but the insulation really helps that. Nevertheless, I still end up sweating up a storm.
BTW, can't your wife just hose you down before you come in.....;-)
Well this was supposed to be a short post, my apologies, I've written a book again.
