    I am currently in the process of figuring out how to finish my 1200 ft shop to not only be my functional work area but to also display all of my taxidermy.

    Show off time!!!!

    Please let's see your stuff

    This could be a real cool thread sir if some folks will jump in and show how they have done this. In my case the platform I built was for my sons trophy because he lives in an apartment with low ceilings.
