Almost done with my shop!

It's been 8 years since Thomlyn and I moved to Portland OR. When we bought the house my wife and I had a deal that the garage was all mine, all 20'x20'. Ive spent a couple of hours, give or take a few thousand, turning it into my super cool/nerd man space. I just wrapped up a 3 day cleaning and organizing session and here we have it, Strange World Studios!

I spent the morning cleaning my paint booth and changing the filter. I hadn't cleaned it in about a year, an the filter was over 5 years old. The booth itself was a lab cabnet called a "dry box", my buddies dad is a laser psysicist and he ran a few experiments in it. It has a cool pass through opening on the side and a huge clear lid. I stuck an exhaust fan in the back on a rheostat and a light on the top. The pass through now has a box heater on it so I can run a stream of hot air into the box and help things dry/cure faster!
Check out all the paint dust that came out of my old filter...damn I'm glad that's not in my lungs. Saftey first.
