Jamie, it looks like you have put together a pretty nice shop. You appear to have plenty of room in there and the window is a bonus in my book since I am a firm believer in getting natural light into the shop. Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

And let me welcome you to LJs as well. It is good to have you on board as a member of the group.

Thanks everyone. Scott, there is another window to the left of that one and when the weather is right (i.e. not raining) I open the exterior door for additional light and great air flow.

Autumn – that is NOT ‘Alaskan’ cedar. They are both good ole CANADIAN yellow and western red cedars from right here on Vancouver Island supplied to me by my very own private wood gnome! It is all clear – completely knot free – and there is more of it outside against the shop and out back in another stack! The yellow cedar is my wood of choice as it combines all the attributes of both hard and softwoods with the exception of not being hard enough to stand up to compression forces like maple, oak , walnut, etc., will. I also use as much other local wood as possible although our maple is not quite as hard and strong as the Eastern ones due to our climate and we don’t get as much of the squirrely grain also. I have managed to score some spalted alder and some beautiful pieces of local yew (now there’s a hard wood! – almost as hard as the arbutus I’m working with right now!)

Welcome, Nice cozy shop and some gorgeous work.
I’m from the “wet coast” myself and know what you mean when you say _”ie not raining”.
I told people when I moved up from the coast that I wasn’t chubby, I was water logged. haha
Well have fun and be safe. :)

Have your say...
