I love the desks. I wish I could have that kind of luck! That's a slick way to groove wheels. Is that a set of hack saw blades that I see in the grooving block?

Yes John those are hacksaw blades.  I marked the grooves on the wood using a factory wheel then cut the grooves with my band saw and inserted the blades , also made a couple extra grooves for wider tires.

Thanks Rod

Thanks Doc   I watch Craigslist every day. We also have an online auction here I'm always looking for items of good wood I can cut up. I have a pretty good supply now, 95% of the wood I use is reclaimed.

Great looking shop Dan! And a great place to "retire" to (in more ways than one) when the time comes.

Though born and brought up in UK (where, generally speaking, the houses are quite small) I now live in Switzerland (where the rooms are generally larger than in UK houses, and where, unlike the UK, most houses have cellars - basements).

So all in all I'm quite happy with the amount of space I have for my "man cave", but I must say that just about every time I see US and Canadian shops I come over all jealous about the "aircraft hangars" you blokes generally seem to have to play in. Same in Australia too.

Nice.
