Traditional Woodworking Tours #10: Middleton Plantation Workshop Tour

08-14-2014 01:51 PM by WoodAndShop | 3 comments »

But fortunately my photos below are not! Ahhh, what could be better than a traditional workshop in a heavenly location like this? (pssst…ignore the aligators) Nobody was manning their workshop station while I poked my head into this workshop, so I just gave myself a tour. I ...

But that is fine, as we all need a break from our regular routine once in a while. Usually I go pretty much non-stop and even when I take time 'off' I am doing something work related. Slowing down a bit for the past mon...

The arms have been lubricated and everything mechanical seems to be in order.
