This is where all the magic happens Posted Image Posted Image
It's not real fancy or a very big work area, but so far it's worked out. I would love a shop with more room and storage for all my supplies (junk).

What you have to do is to think that each leg, foot, ear or whatever is a separate sculpture and all together make the finish piece.

I'll try and get one this weekend. It doesn't have to be big or fancy, looks good to me

Scott,

Your picture would be perfect for a "Find the hidden object" game! Okay, find two philips screwdrivers, one gold toolbox and one cord reel. Posted Image

Seriously, thanks for the picture. As a newbie, I look forward to see other peoples shops/workspaces. Especially the guys/gals who have very little space. I'm looking for ideas to maximize small spaces. My current "workshop" is outside. That's workable in August, but January will be a different story. (I live in North Dakota) Brrrrr!

I'll post pictures of my "shop" tomorrow...as long as it's not raining. If it is, the shop is closed! Ha-ha

I moved from half of my one-car garage into this space in April.
It's in a warehouse shared with about 6 other artists.

Okay; here's my current "shop". (Without the welder...it just finished raining)

The upside is I don't have to worry about ventilation.

The downside is...well there's a lot of downside. Especially in a few months.

You sure do some nice work Jim! Posted Image
Pru- nice place you have. I couldn't keep it that clean for long. Posted Image

You have to start somewhere Mike!

That is a good idea Teresa!

Here is a couple more shots of the garage. I built some shelves to store my art supplies.

I'm headed out on a Jeep trip pretty soon. Gonna have to move all my stuff!
