Robert, Michael and Dave, thank you. I think I still have a lot of details to add, it's a matter of coming up with the right ones and where to place them.

In the mean time, I just painted this little guy from Reedoak in France.

Made this rack today, set of three between posts, will hold clamps and tools to hang, as well as some odd stuff in lower and maybe upper shelves. Any thoughts? I am up In the air on whether it looks good or not.

Alternately I thought of adding separate self-standing shelves.

You won't hurt my feelings which ever way you think.

I like it just the way it is.

This way the tools will be visible.

Thanks Jerry. I think that after I get everything added on, it will look a lot better.

Tony,

Once you have tools on it it will look better and make a lot more sense. Right now it looks like an oversized fence even though it logically isnít.

I like the originality; not yet another bench.

I think that once it is loaded up with stuff, it will look great. No one is going to be thinking, "if only it were some shelves".
Cheers,

Thanks Dave. The idea is to have some narrow shelves, yet some areas to hang tools. Your right, when I get a chance this weekend, I will load it up, or some of it anyway, depending on how much time I have

There is an O scale kit I have from Western Scale Models which includes a shop heater. There isn't one available in HO, so....I made my own. Took the best of some 6 hours over 2 days. Still need to paint it though.

At first, I forgot I had it, and printed off a picture I found on line of the same thing. After I paint it I'll add it between the car and loco side of the shop, along with a coal bin and some tools like a coal rake and shovel. I'll even put in some real coal from Smith & Son's Ballast.

For a size comparison, the first photo is about actual size.

Tony,

Nice shop stove. Seems only fitting that what looks like a home-made stove is represented by a home-made model.
