My workshop was created in the initial six months or so of 2014, as portrayed in the video available on Vimeo:

The transformation of the English-style Conservatory, designed by me and constructed in 1997 by Tanglewood Conservatories, followed 17 years of use solely as a gym after my decade of high altitude mountain cliimbing. The transformation included donating several pieces of exercise equipment to charities to create room for a sizable cabinet (designed by me and commissioned for construction by two Portugese carpenters) to hold tools and an area for my Lie Nielsen work bench. Both are shown in the diagrams and are described in detail in the video at the link on Vimeo.

What a lovely space to be able to make sawdust in.

And, I do not do windows!

You must be the most careful and meticulous woodworker of all time! I really wish I could have that many windows but I’m already contemplating putting storm windows on the inside of the 3 I already have O_o That hammock is beautiful, though! Did you build it?

As for the beautiful hammock … we clearly I agree which is why it is on my property but unfortunately I lack the skills to make it. I purchased it years ago and it is still available with a better marketing image

Awesome workspace! I’m sure not sure if you’re in DC or NC from the LJ pages here…If DC and you ever need a hand in the shop, I don’t live too far away and I’d love to see your masterpiece of a workshop.

The window thing? I Live in Minneapolis… windows are luxury not for the urban area…
