August 27, 2020

Lawrence Pinter has a big project underway. Many of us might wish we could start all over and design a purpose built shop for our turning and woodworking. Lawrence has taken the bit between his teeth (the gouge in his hand??) and planned his shop from conception to completion. We will be sharing images as the work progresses. Thanks Lawrence for sharing your project with us.


Here is one of the drawings outlining the shop details.

The slab is poured and framing should start on Monday if all goes according to plan.

Attached is a view of my shop taken this morning.  We are waiting for electrical and gas to be installed before interior cladding is done.

Electrical being roughed in.  Twelve 110/220 plugins  and two ceiling pull downs.
