    Some updates on workshop construction within my pole shed.

    Basically, I ended up not having the time to do it, so I hired someone. This was an excellent move, and has turned the project away from mediocrity to exactly what I want.

    The end of my pole shed is now framed, insulated and sheetrocked. Wire and outlets are placed, and the next phase is sand and paint.

    The builders rescued my 8 ft ceiling and turned it into a 9ft ceiling shop, which I am very happy about. And it's got a proper door. There will be 4 X 8ft flourescent tube lights on the ceiling. Later in the year (when fall comes around again but let's not think about that too much) I will add a propane heater. I have had wiring run for that purpose.

    Anyway, coupla pics:

    The interior of the shop is roughly 16' X 30', which leaves approximately 25' X 30' left in the pole shed uninsulated for general storage - and building out at a later date.

    So far so good!

    Newly installed this weekend. Went together well. Seems durable. Oil comes up much more easily than from plywood. Cuts with wood tools. Good service.

    Not to hijack, but are they slippery when wet? My concrete floor was "over finished" and in wintertime it's tough to keep my feet under me.

    Can't figure out how to do this in one post.

    Really wish I had a picture when the shop was cleaned up.

    Delta cabinet saw from 1935, still in great working order, can be seen in the background. Vacuum bagging some carbon fiber this morning.

    Thanks! It's almost finished now! I've been traveling so much for work I've been neglecting my personal obligations to myself and my friends... a big shop with lots of toys!

    That is the s - abs and ohlins in the rear:eek1

    Very sexy to my eye. I believe the designers had a lazy Susan with threadless Italian beauties spinning slowly as inspiration. They very methodically chose the finest curves from each and mounted an engine in the middle. And the ride delivers. :clap
