Well I don't have a permanent shop but I make do with what I have.
Every machine I own has a story behind it!!
Seems like most of my nice pieces go away as gifts but I do enjoy seeing others appreciate my creations!
Woodworking is one of many (too many?) hobbies...
Cycling (the pedal kind) photography, hunting, fishing, two daughters....the list goes on!!
I tend to be somewhat of a purist in that I generally will not stain a wood to a different color. If I need a dark wood....I use a dark wood....need a light wood....use a light wood etc...
I will do what I need to do in order to make a particular species like curly maple or QSWO grain "pop" as much as possible but I really enjoy using contrasting woods together on a project, and let the woods speak for themselves.
