I love shaping shacks. Much more fun to look at than shaping bay's. Mine looks much the same!

hey rob,

that place was barely 8'x8'. just enough room to work. of course it was really the all purpose room...shape/glass/sand/gloss/daydream
am going back exuma in a few weeks, can't wait!

yeah, its good. but in the past I had got problem with the dust..for ex, for a gloss finish..well, I mean perfect finish...

Oh man, me too. My 2 boards came out looking a bit dirty from all the funk in there. But for a backyarder, it's heaven.

The worst bit though, is not being able to see the edges of the board well. The dark background really helps you see little imperfections.

hey rob, and reverb,

yeah, and as you can see there was no ventilation except the big door in front. so, all the shaping/sanding dust was never really gone, plus laminating/hotcoating etc was a nightmare for fumes...
then there was the lighting problems you mentioned...

yeah, it was heaven, i miss it, lol.
