Its been several months since the last 'Shop Night'. Between the holidays and work, I've been kinda overwhelmed ever since Thanksgiving.
But now its 2019, and things are getting back to normal. And that means...

Its time for an Armor Party. Mr. Green

Facebook Event Link:

Come up to the shop for a day of armor building, prop making, and hanging out. All are welcome, cadets and veterans alike, regardless of whether or not you have anything to work on.

If you're new to costuming/prop making, this is a great opportunity to pick up some tips and learn from some experienced builders. And even if you don't have anything to work on yet, its also a great way to meet some of the local legion members and put names with faces.

If you're not new... come anyway! Hang out and bring your next project!

February 2, 2019

Workshop time begins at 1:00pm, and ends... whenever the last person goes home. You're welcome to stay and work until midnight or later if you want. (And if you want to get there a little earlier, that's cool too. Just let me know beforehand.)

Flowery Branch (Gainesville).
PM me or text me for an address. Cool

Contact Info:
If you need the address, or directions, or have a question...
You can text me at: 706-296-0468
Or email me at:

Please bring some snacks/drinks, etc. (Chips, Dip, Cookies, Sodas, whatever) I would recommend eating lunch before you arrive. We'll probably order a bunch of Pizzas for dinner, so bring a few dollars to pitch in! Smile

Tools / Equipment:
The workshop has: Band Saw, Scroll Saw, Miter Saw, Drill Press, Bench Grinder, Bench Sander, Heat Gun, Dremels (plural), Sewing Machine, and a bunch of other fun stuff.

What to bring:

If there are any specific tools you want to use, please bring your own. You're more than welcome to use any tools here, but if someone else is using the only ___, then you might have to wait.

Costume Materials. I have a little velcro/glue available, if you want something specific be sure to bring your own! Likewise, I've got some sandpaper here, but if you want to use a specific grit, etc, you might want to bring your own. There is a Home Depot about 5 or 10 minutes from the house, so if you forget something, or decide you need more, you can make a quick trip and resupply, but I recommend getting everything you think you'll need ready beforehand.

Also, its a good idea to bring a camping chair if you have one.

All are welcome, cadets and veterans alike, regardless of whether or not you have anything to work on. Cool
