Wow! Great looking shop!

OT, Sinkers looks just like our Swiffer, who unfortunately passed a few years ago in an accident. He could be a twin. Swiffer adopted us one day and stayed for a couple of years. We named him Swiffer because the first time in our home he rolled on the floor and came up dusty. :) A most beautiful cat…

Well sure, Dennis. Anybody could turn out great work with a shop like that! LOL!

Seriously, that me be one of the most well-equipped and organized shops I’ve ever seen. I might have to visit my cousin in Papillion just so I can drop by and see it in person. :-)

Very nice, but that is my shop cat, Squeak, in the photo. What’s she doing in Omaha?

Nice! I usually like to have things organized behind closed doors (cabinets and such) but those wall mounted tools are laid out beautifully! Also – nice touch on the WorkBench with the extrusion for the vise! I like that idea.

You have a wonderful shop with lots of space and you have organized your hand tools well. I think that most of us would simply love working in a set up like you have.

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Wow, great organization and super use of space. My dogs would go nuts if I introduced a shop cat into the mix. LOL

Dennis I like the layout. Lots of hand tools , all visible.
Your production looks very impressive!

I don’t have any pets right now except for squirrels but a neighbours cat adopted me.
He comes over and yowls at the window till i let him in.
The squirrels hate him.

Nice shop, Dennis!! I would love to be that organized. I would love to have a Marquetry section like yours. Lot’s of good ideas in there… thanks for posting this.

I’m looking at each of the photos, being amazed at your creations and then cat pix came up and my first thought was “wow… he’s GOOD!!” and then I realized I was looking at a real cat!

I love your shop Dennis!

It looks very well organized. I guess it should be that way if this is your living

You can’t be wasting your time looking for things, like I have to in my shop.

I think you could fit ten, or twenty of my shops in there.
