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.


Yes, even the ceiling

Gotta eat and drink

“Big Boy” Bandsaw

John using the bandsaw ~ I love his tats.

My Horned Muse Garden..

My lofted Office..

My Art room : for finishing, painting, and sculpting.

Dry sink ~ always a mess

Joiner and giant drawing board, and mirror for Feng Shui across from the door (I keep it balanced for creative energy)

Table saw… needs to be redesigned again.

More wood and one of my wood spirits (“Lost Friendships” ~ cast aluminum)

My craft room ~ enter at own risk ~ I am not a hoarder.. okay maybe a little.. lol.

Large item storage

Small item storage

Glass work storage

My Wheeled benches ~ all sturdy enough to stand on, short enough to roll out the door
The “Fastener” bench

The “Power tool” bench

The clamp rack

My Bench Dog table router

The “Woodworking” bench

The “Carving” bench

The “Turning” bench

The “Assembly” bench ~ with a few of wands ready for boxes, tags, and homes.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my fantasy-land woodworking and art studio.
I can’t wait to get home all inspired from Italy and make more stuff!!

Wauuuu, what a wonderful palce you have!
That is a workshop of of dreams, plenty of light, plenty of room, plenty of tools and a love for wood that shines.
How can you be anthing but happy there, I would be a walking smile.
My work shop could be in the finish area, and that is all the room I have.
Wauuu.
Best thoughts and have a good tour,

Feng Shui. Now that’s funny.
Shop looks like a great place to work though.

Hey Eric in Italy… Bon journo! did I spell that right?

I loved looking at every detail of these pictures.
I’m sure it took a long time to get it set up like that. Nice layout, nice loft, nice wood collection, and tools everywhere….in other words, Nice!

A touristy picture of you in Italy would be cool! Don’t be camera shy now!

have fun…see ya soon!
