    At the risk of self-incrimination and perhaps massive amounts of ridicule, I post this picture in the hopes that people more organized than I will post pictures of their shops so I can get organization ideas. In my slight defense, we're in the middle of build for Cinderella. I'm planning on making a mitre saw table and revamping our lumber storage, but I would love to see your shops.

    It's going to take me a while to get over the fact that you have windows.

    We've all been there. Here is my Shop and storage solutions. We are mid-build for Legally Blonde at the moment.

    We have yet to install the air and power drops, shelving and sinks. the upper area far off there, I made them put in railings and a staircase for added storage. and they thought it was going to be empty space... PS this is THE ONLY space we have for set construction, props build, set storage, prop storage, and Oh yeah, we're sharing with a woodshop class and their supplies and tools. It's gonna be a bumpy ride!!

    My God! You people have all died & gone to heaven & don't know it. We built operettas in this--one a week for 8 weeks. Ah, summer stock!

    @JonCarter Mine still has a crank on its side. If I ever graduate to one without a crank I'll be in even bigger trouble.
    Toodleoo!

    Yes. I was there in '60-61-62 when it was the Oberlin College G&S Players. How about you?

    I worked as TD & LD. Most of our design was done by our director, Bob Gibson. I have a lot of his sketches which were all there was to build from. Fun. What is the lighting setup now? I had "fun" with the board back then--see "Stops" above. I assume by now it would have been replaced w/something electronic.

    Time for an after picture. After our production of Cinderella last year, I figured we should invest in new tools and storage for the scene shop. I doubt the shop will ever be this clean again. Shop - after.JPG
