Okeeedokee podna. I'm a week late but here's the pictures off of my phone. There's just not enough hours in a friggin' day anymore! lol
The outside of the shop. Both outer doors on both sections slide towards the middle.
The original lift. I think he gave $100 for it when he first opened the shop over 40 years ago. The tool box in against the wall is something he made out of wood waaaaaaaaaaaaaay back when. I dunno if I was even born yet when he did that and I'm 48!!
The "new" side of the shop that was added 20 years ago.
Ol' dad's about 5 foot 6 inches tall and clocks in at around 130lbs. He put each one of those rafters up there by................himself!! And he put 'em up there as a complete assembly!!!! He's gotta be the strongest little man I know.
So there you have the pictures that I've been promising now for two weeks good buddy.
Yesterday's gone and Tomorrow aint here yet. Today IS the best day we'll ever have.

aussiemodler: Im hearing ya mate. I've had this plane build on my bench for my dad for over 12 months and I've done more in the last 3 days then in those 12 months. I think motivation helps also.

stitchdup: I think most of my motivation has been boredom at work, knocking out a couple of curbsides fills in some time cos there really is no work for me to do other than be on the boat all night. If anything happens I phone someone to come and sort it cos I'm not

stitchdup: qualified to do any of it, and most of it needs 2 or more people anyway. All I know how to do is pull the line tight on the winch and even that I can only do in emergencies

aussiemodler: well that just sux

aussiemodler: I HATE painting in these Queensland summers, its 1830 32c (90F) and 75% humidity, everything dries to quick.

stitchdup: I dont think i've ever been in that much heat, 24 is hot here, lol

DeeCee: When it's hot, i slap it on very wet, the heat acts as an oven, usually end up with a DEEP gloss.
