EAA Chapter 643 Builder Visit

Recommended Posts

Several weeks ago I was invited to an "Open Shop" event nearby.  I was amazed at the shop when I got there, which could fit several more planes than the 2 that were in it.  The builder is working on an RV and was seeking feedback from everyone.  

What's interesting about this shop is that it's on residential property, but the door opens to extended grass end of an airport runway.  I'll have to find out more about this arrangement, but here are some pictures in the meantime...


These doors open towards the runway just a short taxi away...


I'm spent more time looking at the shop than I did the plane...


I noticed these EAA Chapter 1000 worktables, which mine are based as well.  I thought I used too many screws, but these tables beat mine by a few more screws per lineal foot (if I were ever to build new tables, I'd seek the same strength but half the wood).
