My latest knife making project – a knife making shop. I was able to build a shop with a maximum space of 461 sq ft …so that is what I built. Concrete and gutters were outsourced – the rest I did myself. Have to thank Doug and Chad for helping me with the rafters, my neighbor Jason for helping me with the roofing felt, my Dad for the siding and paint and my wife and son for some other random tasks/giving me the time to do it. I poured concrete on 8/11/16 and hung the last panel inside on 12/11/16. I burned a lot of weekends out there building this, but it is very nice to have a separate space for this.

Fabulous!!

Brad, you continually amaze me with your skills. No doubt you will be a successful knife maker!

I'll bet this means you are not moving back to Illinois in the near future? [Confused]
