Officially Shopless
« on: November 11, 2018, 06:36:07 PM »
A picture of my two sons and me. 



My entire shop packed up and loaded on the U-Haul, headed for Denver.  Can't tell you how excited the boys are to be taking my tools home.  A whole new world of possibilities has been opened up to them.
So many projects, so little time...

Its nice to know all of your tools are going to be made use of rather than gathering dust and with the tools did you given the boys a list of things you think they should make with them ;)

Hello Chuck,

Not to worry, any time you feel the need you are surely welcome to come over and use my shop. Those two boys definitely have that cfellows smile.

Hello Chuck

That's one of the saddest/happiest, most bittersweet photos I have ever seen.

God bless you all

Mike

The truck is obviously fully loaded given its angle :-)

Your legacy will live on, which is something that we all should hope for.

Im glad that happened Chuck.   Thats a great picture!   My greatest memories are when I did things with my kids, thi gs that were important to them became so inportant and meaningful to me.    As they grow , the rolls reverse,   that will be a day they wont forget.

Perhaps in time we will see something from your lads on here, even if it is the set up of their workshops.

Cheers, Chuck. I would just like to begin by saying thank-you. For over the years, I have watched with keen interest, your works coning to life. It seems that a fork in the road of life has been reached and a passing of the torch has been made. Well done sir, and once again thank you. It is my hope that we will see something from your sons projects in metal gracing these pages in the future. Best regards, and good fortune to you.
