I have been slowly taking some of the overflow of my collection into my new dream garage that was built over 1 1/2 years in 2016 - 2017. The build took quite awhile to get it right but was well worth the effort. I acquired the latest oak showcase in April. This last week while on holidays I found some time to clean and refinish it. I was planning to put Imperial globes in its lower area but the 16 1/2" steel bodied ones are an inch too tall to fit. I can only fit a shorter one piece globe. The shelf brackets are homemade and not adjustable so the globes will have to go somewhere else. I want to keep all my Imperial collection together so I still have two other full showcases to move in. The collection in the house is just too full and I don't want to repeat that mistake in the garage. So the move is just a gradual one with no deadline nor set plans. It is more of a process to find out what works best in the space that I have. It is a great place to work and play in. Cheers, Don.

Don, as usual the quality of your stuff blows me away. It is near impossible to find any mint black red ball stuff these days. Garage looks great.

Don, as always, excellent work and "stuff". I am hoping we can see the rest, which is equally as good, in its new environment soon. Nice way to spend the holiday, eh!?
