Hello and thanks for all your welcome e-mails. My first project also happens to be my very small workshop in my back yard. I really like post and beam construction. When I decided to build my own space outside the house , I knew it had to be a true post and beam. By keeping it small I could also keep it affordable. A lot of my materials are recycled and scavenged from local friends of mine who are contractors. I enjoyed working with slick, chisels and other old tools to create curved corner braces ,housed dovetails and shouldered mortise and tennons that make up this tiny shop. It’s only 10ft X 14ft . I designed it myself, and got most of my Ideas from books by Ted Benson and David and Jeanie Stiles. I love spending time in it especially on cold winter days when I can crank up my little wood stove and attempt to carve something. Carving is something I’m not really great at but I’m learming.
