My “paradise” is my micro-workshop (7 ft x 6 ft total area) stuffed in the service closet of my apartment. My profession is business management and I am an amateur self-taught wood artisan. I can work only after 8 PM and weekends. I am not allowed to produce noise and dust. Is it possible? Yes, because of my love for wood! My present set of tools is comprised of an Italian-style workbench, a carving bench, a hand power drill, a miter saw, handsaws, few hand planes, rasps and files, chisels and gouges (over 200), hammers and mallets, scrapers, pliers, few clamps, few measuring instruments and screwdrivers. I believe I have been working wood in exactly the same way it was done in the 18 th century, which means painstaking physical effort and low productivity, yet high quality.
