My workshop is a shed in my backyard, 10ft x 20ft, rather small and full of tools I use and dont use.
But it’s my space and I know where everything is. Picture 3 is small items I make for the markets, pen/pencil
holders, some with clocks. Sell them cheap and they move okay. Picture 4 shows my first attempts at
wood turning, I bought a Mini Lathe but am having so much fun I might up grade, and there are 2 projects I have scroll sawn ready to carve

I know what you mean by “i know where everything is”.

Nice shop.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for the shop tour. You have a nice space in which to work and I really like the projects on your shelf.

Nice post. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Thanks. It’s getting to small now that the buying tool bug has me and with the turning added to my addictions I need more room to store the wood. Everything I seem to want is on the bottom of the pile. But it’s so much fun playing with wood.

Nice space. I think I know where every tool is till I start looking. I think someone moves them overnight.

Hi Bob,
WHAT’S THIS ABOUT ARGUING WITH WOMEN!!!

I just checked your shed and gallery out. WOW! some really nice stuff. The woodwork’s not bad either!

Hey you live Bendigo, I was born in Benalla (a few hundred years ago), so I guess we are neighbours????

Hi Theresa, Arguing, can never get a word in. Have up graded most the equipment but the woodworks still the same. Benalla is not that far away, you have some great scrollwork in your gallery.

Nice shed Bob.
I’m liking how many fellow Aussies I’m seeing on this site.
