Rockland, MA 02370

I have had the “junkroom” as my wife has called for 7 years, and finally made the decision to set it up so all my tools are easily usable. My father-n-law gave me a lathe so I could start making pens and such. I cleared the area first and then went at it….I always use wood that is at hand, and never throw any scrap away. You can see the evidence in my homemade shelving unit, made from a bathroom vanity from over 8 yrs ago. So excited to get hings all set up and to get going on the lathe. You can see that I built somewhat of a box around the lathe, hoping it acts like a chip and dust catch.

Looks like a great place to lose yourself in & get creative!
