It's humble right now, but I've got some ideas in the works and some organizing will happen.  Welcome to The Forge.

 

This logo was actually one I helped to design for one of my old army units.  I ended up with roughly 10 million of these stickers, so I put them on everything.  Seems appropriate for The Forge...

It's humble, but it works (it has to share space with my normal work area and storage, so maximum efficiency of space is necessary and things will get better as I have time to work on it):

Some of the equipment (and some unused firewood from the summer):

Home-made pull-up bar.  It's low enough to do muscle-ups (when I get to that point):

Cool logo! I'd even find space for one of those at the smashbox!
Does it hurt? Good. Get it done.

Jumper, you let me know where to send it and it'll be there as fast as a U.S. postman can swim the pacific...  (Is he going to have to swim backwards, or upside down, or something when he crosses the equator?)

 

Thank you, UKoldguy!  I'm pretty excited now that it's taking shape.

MAN, I love to see a good garage gym come together!! Good stuff!! I'm currently iron on concrete as well. Where are you going to look for mats?

Well, I'm in farm country, so horse stall mats are plentiful.  They are 6' x 4' and 3/4 inch thick and usually cost $30-$50.  Three or four of them is perfect.

Ha! Stu, that one guy who told me I couldn't use the equipment never did stop staring me down for the rest of the time. I would go out of my way some mornings just to (literally) run circles around his class on the track.

Jumper, it would be an honor to have The Forge represented in the Smashbox. Those of us that have these stickers have kind of a friendly competition to see where we can stick them. No one's made it to NZ yet...

Pops, it's getting tougher for me to hold on to my "likes" these days with all of the awesome stuff going on around here, too.

Nice set up man

It is not a matter of if something bad happens.  That is living in denial that evil exists.  It is a matter of when something bad comes knocking at your door.  Will you be ready?

Love the Palate for plate storage.  I think I am going to steal that idea.
