" Hi, Mick.
Thank you for the comment on my Shed/Shop. I recycled most of my wood from my old 10x12 shed in this bigger one. Most of the walls were built with the recycle 2x4s from the old shed. The only thing that has new materials is…"
" I think that would be a great idea, Mick. I am still working on mine as you can tell by some of my pics of late. I haven't started on the lighting yet but, I do get natural light by my six clearstory windows and warm sunshine in the…"
You know my neighbor and his buddy put that big beam in place. I look at that big black beam and see two small sized uprights the same size holding up the roof. It is a really cool talking piece when someone looks up. I…"
"Lesslee, this is a nice micro wave table as it is not only a good design but also looks very stable. The design is great as it has two shelves under the table of which is something not ofter seen, Usual designs only have a main surface above and one…"

" That's a great idea, Lanelle. The extra seating,storage, and a toy box for the kids. I like a woodworker thinking of everything a coming up with a cool looking seating area. You could sit down have a brew or two with company and the kids…"

What a nice useful gift your kids bought you for your birthday. I like the way you made the cart fit the legs of the miter saw stand. Your cart gave me an idea for my workmate. You always need storage and mobility in the shop. Thanks…"
Hi Leslee , thank,s for nice comment on case , used Spanish Oak on this one and a lot of my other project,s , the guy did not want poly on this one and did have a lot of room to display a lot of thing,s , have a great day , JIM !!
Thanks for your input, Leslee. I will check, but at our location our county doesn't require building permits, although they are quick to put an evaluation on our property tax!
Our plan is to purchase a building that comes with the metal all cut and all the hardware, overhead door, walk out door and window included. We would like an overhang of the roof on one side to cover a porch area. We will hire one experienced carpenter who has put up a couple of barns for us. I am lucky in this, my husband, son, and neighbor are going to help the carpenter to keep costs at a minimum. I am buying 6 inch insulation from my brother, who overbought for his shop. That is all I have done for sure. Are you putting up a building for a wood shop? Did you have plans to install a dust collection system? There are so many things to consider, I am a bit overwhelmed. I am thankful for the carpenter we have, but he is open to new ideas too.
I hope your disability allows you to get your building up and functioning soon. It would be nice to have an area to work in this cold weather!
Hi Leslee , thank,s for the nice comment,s on my bench !!! I saw the basic plan on Lowes site and revised it to my own taste,s !!

Hi Leslee , Thank you very much for the comment on my chair , the oo1 picture is the one the guy sent me to see if I could make one like it , the 003 picture is the one that I made with a few changes to the boom - tool box and the colors !! I am sorry if I confused every one by posting both pictures , just wanted to show every one what I had to work with to make this chair , also posted my mistake on the main page !! sending you a pic. of the right one , have a great day , JIM !!!
Thanks Leslee for all of the Information. I will be checking out both of the websites. I'm not ready to build one just yet, but I'm always looking to get ideas. I will check out the information on the height for sure. I am 5'7 and don't usually have too much trouble with the height of the tables. This will definitely help me with making a decision. Lorrie
Thanks for the tip on train items at Rockler.com. Not only are the buildings of interest to me, but I found the router bits for building the tracks to be something I was in the market for. Greatly appreciate it Leslee! :)
Leslee , thank you for your comment on my clamps , It did take years to get them , but I can do a few projects at a time and you can never have to many clamps, have a great day and enjoy building your projects , JIM
