My shop is on the first floor of a carriage house/barn in back of our house. It was built in 1880. The tools I have collected all my life and still use many of them from time to time.

Cool shop, love the old tool collection. Maybe you could answer a question on how you poated your shop to show a picture on the shop page.I uploaded my shop pictures a few days ago and it comes up on the shop page as np image available but when you open it they all show up? I uploaded from photo bucket.

Ooooooooooooh! Aladin’s cave! What a fascinating place. I’d never get any work done. I hate to mention this, but I hope you’ve made a plan for all that to go to a worthwhile place when you’re gone? A museum or something? Other woodworkers?

Scott, I just put the pics in the computer and clicked them on the page. If you see some of the projects I posted some of the pictures are sideways and up side down so posting these pictures correct was luck.

A lifetime of collecting with a lot of stories. If you look to the right you can a shoe jack. That section is my Grandfather and Father’s section. They were shoemakers and their hand tools are there. Some of my grandfather’s tools he brought from Italy around 1913. some of the farm tools are from my other grandfather. He had a small shop where he made spray nozzles to water Roses and mushrooms. The spray had to be a soft stream of water so each hole had to be directed not to damage the peddles or mushroom. I have on of his nozzles that has 810 hand punched holes in it that he made when he was 78 years old.
One of the first planes I bought is a Stanley 45 I bought at a farmers market when I was 14 (1964) for $6.00.

What a wonderful collection you have! Anyone would love to visit your shop and I’ll bet that the building is wonderful, too. Thanks for posting.

A busy place as noted by work going on, no OCD ere, just a person enjoying an art form.
