My shop is a little, woodstove-heated, outdoor garage converted to a woodshop! Come on in – let’s build something!

Great looking shop and from what I can see looking in from the snow…it looks to be a neatly maintained, cozy shop too, especially with the wood stove fired up. ;^) Thanks for the pics.

Hmmmmm. Is that a table on your saw. I hope that shows up in the projects section.

That is an unfinished “tabouret” on the saw – built that with a friend (it was his choice) though I really think that it’s a beautiful little table. Everytime my wife and I go to visit at his house, I always wish I had my camera so I could get better pics of the table! One day I’ll take them…

Very nice shop. And wood heated, gives you something to do with those scrap pieces (and maybe even those major oopps!).

Nice shop, and welcome to Lumberjocks. My sister leaves down the road from you in Seattle. What a place to live!

I would love heading out to that shop early in the morning, cup of hot coffee in hand… Did you do the conversion from garage to shop? It has great architectural details.

John – I did convert the old rotted out garage to the shop. When we bought the place the realtor said, “That’s a teardown!” So, I cut out all the rot, replaced it with sound wood, and completely rebuilt the front end. It’s small, but it works!

The door was from the dump – rescued just before a contractor was about to dump it over, windows from a house teardown, down the block, and the siding was improperly installed on the house, so took it off and put it on the shop! Thanks for you interest!

That’s a nice spot. I’d have a tough time coming into the main house. I’d probably get hungry though.

Looks like a nice little retreat for getting the creative juices flowing.

Mot – not if you saw the main house – just joking.
