I thought you guys might get a kick out this… Essentially, we needed to paint a little roadster inside the new Atomic shop. The problem? We didn’t have a paint booth and the idea of a shop covered in over-spray didn’t seem all that grand.

Hammered In Wisconsin With Baileigh & Jimmy Shine

Editor’s Note: This article originally ran on jalopyjournal.com, but I figured it was relevant to you guys as well…

Fitzgerald once said that you don’t write because you want to say something, you write because you have something to say. That quote has driven me as both a writer and a business owner for some years now and it’s the main reason that I often decline opportunities such as the one Baileigh Industrial offered me a couple of months ago.

Essentially, Shane from Baileigh called and asked if I would be willing to fly out for one of their metal shaping classes. They’d pay the way and the stay, but made no mention of what they expected in return. It’s safe to say, however, that they did expect some coverage from it. This, in and of itself, put me in a weird place.

A Woodshop Tour

This might be all over The Garage Journal and I just missed it… But, I figured it deserved a feature. It’s a well done video of one proud man and his shop. Enjoy it.
