Default What's in your shop when the RV's done?

Along the lines of 'What's your Day job' I thought I'd start a thread on what your shop has in it after the RV left... I know, I know...some of you are going to say 'ANOTHER RV...' (Some of you may notice the yellow overspray on the floor)

If this isn't RV related enough... feel free to delete this Moderators... (or maybe move it to General if it's deserving)

Well my better half wants a new kitchen, so mine now looks like this:



And I'm building these.....

And a few of these..

Default After RV

That's nice work.
When my RV is done, the factory will go back to a furniture factory. I build most of the furniture but stopped to build the RV. Lots more cedar log furniture left to build.

Nice chair.

I just started building a "shop" where my new RV is! I've been in an apartment since I began working years ago so this is the first time I have had a shop or man cave! Loving it! Built a set of 4 EAA1000 benches (2 were smaller from the leftovers). And I'm adding whatever tools I need as I go, to maintain the plane.

That's an 8" bench grinder that is going to go on one of the benches. I also have a beautiful new Wilton vise to keep it company.

When the RV is gone I hope to park my car inside again.

Default 1947 Curtis Wright Travel Trailer

Bought this gutted old trailer many years ago with intentions of rebuilding it. Got started but the Rocket came along and took 7 years out of the progress. This summer my son (new teacher) was looking for work and offered to polish the trailer:



He got it done and decided teaching is better! Currently working on the exterior, then will get to the inside - it is totally gutted.

Always something interesting going on in our shop when we aren't annualing (or modifying) one of the three RV's!

No - we did the tail feathers (the two stabilizers, Ruddervators, and the tiny little rudder) first - so they're complete. We'll finish up the fuselage before starting the long, long wings - just to save on storage space. The spar caps are each longer than the total span of the RV-3!

Now we're involved in yet ANOTHER project with a fellow at a neighboring airpark...but at least that is in HIS shop!
