I've posted some pics of the construction of our new shop on another thread, and lotsa folks asked to see the inside. We finally got moved in this week and I thought I'd share some pictures of the new "Strange Days" shop. Strange Days is a loosely knit group of us guys that concentrate on offbeat projects. Wood , metal, autos, and all other materials are fair game. Because of this the shop is set up to work with most any materials. Its also a bit of a museum where we display restorations and other stuff we simply find interesting. The gas sign is an old spare tire cover from an RV that has been re-purposed. The Coke macine was found at a yard sale, restored, and now serves as the shops refrigerator. The pinball machine was a gift from a fellow rodder I repaired an oil pan for. The right side of the shop is setup mostly for metalwork, the left side for wood and softer materials The restored kids vehicles are a passion of mine. Heres a shot of a lot of the metalworking tools. We are pretty well equipped to produce most anything we dream up. The workbench is 20 feet long and has a solid 1/2 inch thick steel top. It is soooooo handy. The cabinets we made ourselves. Storage is in bins and cabinets on the back wall. These were reclaimed from a bank demolition. More crap to work with. These are the cabinets on the woodshop side. I found a little guy named Chris Faibanks to paint them for me a lot of years ago. It was his last job before he headed out to Austin to make it in the big time as a comedian. A few years later I was watching Jimmie Kimmel and he introduced a new comedian named Chris Fairbanks.... Well I'll be goddamned-he made it! There's well over 100 clamps on this wall, and there are times we still run out while working on projects. The pictures above are some of the Carousel horses we've carved. All in all though, the shop is super well equipped for a bunch of halfassed backyard builders. Hope you enjoyed the New Years tour. If you are ever out this way give us a call and stop in!
