What else comes from your shop?

Apologies that there have been no 'updates' from the TBW facility in recent days.. but i have been on other constuction projects..

Made me wonder.. We have all of this equipment to build models, but what else comes from your workshop?

I had 820 pieces of cut-to-size lumber show up at 0730 yesterday morning to build a few flower boxes for the wife. Guess what I'll be doing this weekend.

Now if I could only find a way to get some of that mahogany that I came across Saturday while at the local lumber yard...

Models only from my shop. Other things are done outside if at all and there's no room for other stuff anyway. Pete

I have a salt water fish tank. Built this Auto Top Off unit. As water evaporates, fresh water is added to replace what evaporated. Kinda boring to watch, but it took me a while to design and build it. Had fun working with electronics again.

Vince, you are a true artisan with your pen making!

I have wanted to try this. I see the materials advertised in the Grizzly catalog. After seeing your beautiful examples I am not sitting on the fence any longer!
