THIS IS MY SUMMER WORKSHOP

From May until the end of October, my sweetheart, & I move from our small home in town, to a smaller lake cabin home. We stay there until the weather permits us.

Our cabin is located on a peninsula with about 500 feet of shoreline.

It’s like Heaven on Earth in the”Land of Sky Blue Waters”.

Check out our Blog series, of our cabin.

I have a fresh air shop in the back yard, under a canopy.

I had a problem last fall. The motor on my portable tablesaw burned out, so I hauled my old radial arm saw up there. The motor on that burned out the first time I used it. This spring I bought a new tablesaw, & that overheated, but luckily it blew the circuit breaker before causing any damage. I checked my voltage & it was low. The power company installed a recorder on my meter, & proved my suspicion of low voltage. They installed a new transformer closer to my cabin, my voltage is fine now, & I’m back in business.

My main project this summer has been making some Cedar log furniture.

When we move to town, I’ll update this to my shop in town.

Dick,

I guess we’er even now or at least when I stop drooling…. What a beautiful spot in the world you have. I see you do rustic outdoor furniture. I would like to see more of that!

You must have done things right in your life,

Joe

Joe.

We just moved to town last week. Just in time to enjoy our first snow yesterday, 20 degrees this morning.
Now I have to start getting my garage shop at home organized, it’s a mess. I lit the “SHIVER” furnace today.

Dick,

We’re getting our first snow today. It looks like we’ll get about 6” if it keeps up. This is a little early for us. Normally we don’t get anything sticking to the ground til sometime in Novemember.

I guess the positive side is this means I’ll start spending more time in my shop.

Dick, I can’t imagine working in a nicer environment. What do you do for woodworking in winter?

Hi don,
Check out my blog, about organizing my workshop. It’s still a little bit messed up, but I’m getting there.
Right now I’m in the designing stage of building a Secretary desk for my recently married Granddaughter. I couldn’t find anything to my liking, so it makes things a little more difficult.

Thanks Shawn.
Right now we’re living in town, and waiting for summer to fight its way back. I think we had our first below zero morning today, which is highly unusual for this area.

Thanks for the welcome.
Now I’m here maybe I’ll actually start building instead of just designing…

Dick, I never saw this workshop of yours until now. Absolutely beautiful surroundings. I now know where you get all your inspiration from.

That is about the neatest work shop area that I have seen. What a wonderful place to spend quality time. Your very lucky and as was stated I can see where you get your inspirations from – you have a real talent for work and picking a beautiful place to work in.

Dick;

Heaven on earth!

You must have lead a good life for God to treat you so well!

So far, my favorite of the “projects” part of this forum is your bench with your lovely wife sitting there. The best part is the hearts and names you engraved in the top. Truly a project from the heart.
