It is complete with two classrooms, one and a half bathroom, 3rd floor jamming area, 40foot long catwalk for visitors, a painting / finishing area, kiln drying area, and a personal drafting room, which is also my bedroom… Yes, I live in my workshop and work there from 7am to 9pm.
The different brands of machines in my workshop are a collection my tools and my dad’s tools over the last 22 years. My dad is a machinist & a mechanical engineer and he has made some of the tool we both still use today.
Here are some tools in my workshop:
2 Jigsaws / 3 Drill Press / 9” Bandsaw / 14’’ Bandsaw / 17’’ Grizzly Bandsaw / Jet Dust Collector / 4 Table Saws / 2 Jointers / Jet Drum Sander / 12.5’’ Portable Thickness Planer / 15’’ Grizzly Thickness Planner / 2 Hand Planers / Wheel Sander / 3 Circular Saw / 4 Corded & 5 Cordless Drills / 2 Miter Saws / 80 Different Pieces of Carving Chisels / 3 Grinders / Automatic Sharpening System / 2 Hand & 2 Stationary Belt Sanders / 3 Routers / Power Feeder / 40’’ Wood Turning Lathe / 2 Spiral Saws / 2 Disk Sanders / 3 Nailers / Scroll Saw / 3 Compressors / 2 Reciprocating Saw / 20’’ Chain Saw / 24’’ Chain Saw / 36’’ Chain Saw
Besides my art & carpentry, I’m also the general manager for my family’s construction company and I will use my studio to prefab housing projects.
If you or a friend would like to take a vacation in the Philippines and would like to do woodworking at the same time in Studio 10.10, let me know and I can give you rates for my guesthouses, my facility and usage of tropical wood. In the future, I plan to put up a museum which includes a space for featuring works of woodworker from all over.
Also, if you like golf, Studio10.10 is next to a 27 hole golf course.
SAFETY FIRST EVERYONE!
