Hey, nice studio space! Nice table. Nice assistant! ;) I'm getting ready to make my own table soon (gotta do it myself though). I'll be using some gnarly old wood though, so it won't look that good, I just hope it doesn't wobble. Hey, what's the dog pound compound made of? Is that styrofoam? Looks like slabs of concrete!

Ha! its really exciting to have such a big space. really sets you in the mood to work and it kinda make it seem more real. makes ya feel all like a pro...ha! hmmm....someday.....a kid can dream?? the walls are made out of better way to imitate concrete than to use concrete. Im sure you can make a steady table out of crappy wood.... I used to build all kinds of cool junk as a kid from scraps. jriggity

I've got garage envy! How big is that space? I'm planning my studio/workshop, but first I have to get the shed built. It's looking like around US $40,000 for the 4-car garage size thing I have in mind, so I may be stuck in the planning stage for a while... Fortunately I can use my studio at work in the meantime.

Im not quite sure. Its big enough for 2 cars....probably standard 2 car garage. I will have a ton of room for my lights and basic getting around. the set has 3 sections built to it. the cage interior.{through the peoples eyes} the hallway .{throught the dogs pov} down the hallway....{people looking in the other cages} that way I have easy acess to all sections... 3 different lighting setups...that I shouldnt have to change once up. The cage door for the dog interior shots is put on aa hinge my wife built so I can take it down and to reach the dog then put it back up between frames. I cant wait to try this out....see if its gona work.. its pretty tight so I think it will. 40 g is alot of dough!! but its for your dream garage-studio. you know your gona use it. jriggity
