    LOL, yup big azz speaker,,, couple of them , all the following will be non-buggy related but cool man stuff

    9 speakers total on shop side and a 1000 watt receiver . it pounds
    Plus a 12' movie screen built into the wall with a projector mounted from the ceiling.
    have had many movie nights and Rock band on the big screen

    we always have music cranking during work and play,,,,, I find silence deafening
    I have separate systems in my office and the lounge AKA the Bon Jody Bar n Grill






    this is the lounge side my son and I finished over the past year





    I also started designing and building custom bar tables and made a corporate desk for a company with there corporate logo embedded

    here is my bar table,,, seats 10 plus. Has a steel old school compass laser cut and embedded in the resin epoxy top





    the compass is also laser cut in the design of the table "X" legs and a 1 1/2 stainless tube foot bar goes thru the laser cut legs








    here is the custom corporate desk table, their logo is laser cut steel, then I machined out the wood to recess it flush,,,, then epoxy resin over top





    legs of both tables I designed are laser cut steel plates screwed to each side of 4 x 4 wood




    while this is all non buggy related, and I'm giving a tour of the shop,,,here are pics of my dogs LOL
    pup is Mavrik, he is 5 months old, Female is Karley, she is 3. Probably making puppies in the next year,,, the way he is sniffing around



    Mavrik



    Dirty dog Mavrik after playing in the mud




    so thats a tour of Protodie,,, I better get back to work

    I would imagine that's pretty close.

    Although....I bet there's a pizza oven around somewhere? Or some other meat searing device?

    I'm speechless man! Great job all the way around!

    Thanks guys,

    you guys got me figured out LOL

    right down to the meat searing device
    I put in an indoor grill and added a vent to the outside so I can grill all winter long here in Michigan
