I was going to take a hiatus from Lumber Jocks until after Italy, but last week I got the bug to clean my studio from top to bottom. My new Assistant is bringing some great energy into the shop, and there are new tools to make room for, so no better time than during a heat wave. I am so happy with the studio I wanted to share it, but there are a lot of photos, my studio is quite large … enjoy and I just found out there is no dependable internet in the Italian Mountains, see ya’ll in 11 days.
My wood collection: wood things I made, wood things I found, wood things I discovered, wood things other people made for me or left here, Projects to finish and a place to sit and be inspired … and my library.
