I lost my shop space. The owner of the barn I rent has changed plans and wants me out.
So, I have begun to pack up the shop, not an easy task. I am finishing up one last project before the move.
I have not found a suitable and affordable space yet but I am hoping for the best.
I think I have a pic or two of my last project in this shop, I’ll post it here.

Beautiful work.
Sorry to hear that, was without shop for four months and they were soooooooooooooo long.
I almost lost hope and then a wonderful place showed up so now I am making shaves again.
So do not loose hope, there is a shop waiting for you.

oh man, and it looked like such a nice place, is there any chance of you moving to a place that would give you your own shop at where you live, or is that not possible….....well i hope something works out, the table sure is a beauty, nice dovetails…and great craftsman design…grizz

Thanks Gary, Mads, Grizzman I am currently searching for a space, I’m sure I will find what I need.
It is not possible for me to set up shop at home. Perhaps in the future, we can get a place with shop space at home.
For now the banks don’t want to give loans and the economy won’t cooperate with me.

You need to find space right away, so you can keep building beautiful things like this table
