Yeah- beer is good for you.. unlike vegetables and sleep..

Against the grain under certain circumstances occurred. Mainly when I was drunk, and wanted to finish the fucker.. :eek: :D - jeez; you can only tell when I used the belt sander ... picky picky.. :D

Is the ceiling going to be cleaned up eventually? And I don't think we've seen specs for that computer yet...

But it's coming out just as beautifully as I anticipated. :cool:

Yea- I'm in the process of cleaning up my mess :D

OK- I'll bite.. how do you know it's a V-Gard?

Cause the company I work for makes them. Flip it over and look on the rim. It'll say MSA V-Gard on it.

I work in a different plant, we make gas detection instruments and other electronic instruments in our plant, but the V-Gard is very easy to spot. All the crew and helpers on that big Home Makeover show wear them too.

You'll appreciate my hardhat that I use every day- I've got a Skullgard, and painted it white with Polane; took it to Kinko's and got our company's logo, name and my name put on it with cut-out vinyl; and the clear coated it with an automotive clearcoat. Looks really sharp. I actually made about 12 of them for people around the office. Damn fine product.

Most of the people I know and work with only use MSA products; hardhats, fall protection etc.

Really nice desk setup :)

I think the best way to do it is to build your own, because then you get exactly what you want. I did the same and built my own desks (although not to the same scale as you own, lol)

Very impressed dude ;)

Beautiful Construction, truely first rate.

To bad the stain is so dark, makes it look cheap, also to bad about the location of the power sockets, they are a real eyesore.

But again, great construction.

looks great, but had you known what you were getting into, would you have still done it? it took a great deal of time and some money I suppose.

if you had to do it again, what would you do differently? I see this as a mega-project

bumping this because we never really got some good final shots. I loved the worklog and would love this type of space.
