This is my studio in downtown Snohomish, Washington. It is a woodworking school and part-time custom woodworking shop. Enjoy! You can see more pics here.

I would’ve shared photos with you, but this site always crashes on me when I try do upload pics. Really limits the time I spend here.

I built this out of 100% recycled/reclaimed and bartered materials. Even the vises were bartered for with wood. It weighs around 400 pounds, but can be broken down into 6 pieces in about 20 minutes and reliably moved.

Derrick, your bench is a tool that any of us would be proud to have in our shops. And making it out of recycled materials makes it even more special. Thanks for posting a picture of it. It is almost too pretty to use. :)

Thanks, everyone. The woods used are mahogony (mostly honduran), cyprus (for the legs), oak and limba (for detailing, and teak on all of the vise faces.

btw, everyone, I am trying to turn this place into a classroom for woodworkers in Snohomish, Washington (in addition to custom work and studio furniture). I am just now getting started. My hope is to teach classes of no more than 4-5 students at a time. Any suggestions you all might have on how to market my company would be very much appreciated! Start up is so stressful, but enormously fun!
