Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Good use of your available space. Plenty of natural lighting with a shop space like this. Really enjoyed looking at your carvings. Great detail and craftsmanship. You last post of the garlic made me hungry. Thanks for the post.

Great looking space. Make the best out of what you have. I’m sure you can’t beat the amount of natural light you have. What does the dungeon (lol) store?

Thanks for warm words! The daylight suffices for work on a miniature, and in the evening and night of the top and bottom lamp me. When I work, I listen to radio a jazz.

Oleg, I have always said that any shop is a good shop. You have done well with the space that you have available. And I have always had a great deal of admiration for those woodworkers willing to put in the time and effort to become proficient with hand tools. Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Nicely organized shop Oleg. I’m always interested in seeing other woodworker’s shops. Many times I am much more impressed with the smaller shops. This is because the quality of work coming from them is at a high level that most of us can only dream of producing. I believe your shop is one of those. It’s wonderful to have a big well equipped shop, but that does not necessarily make us better woodworkers.

Great use of available space! We don’t often see Easter European shops. I love that while it is different, it is all very much the same as well… Kind of unifies us all as woodworkers…

sawblade1, my balcony on the ground floor, therefore is a place under an overlapping plate. It is necessary to chisel through only the hatch and to equip a cellar

The small workshop limits only the size of products, but not a flight of fancy!
