Howdy friends, had the chance to add some more tools (toys….lol) to the new shop space I am getting into and thought I would share with you.

First off….a sincere thanks to all who have commented or enjoyed this ongoing project…..I really appreciate your input and great spirit…… then…..

Some new details for anyone interested!!:

1. More plywood on the walls mostly to the left side of the full on viewed picture by the window.

2. Hand braces, drawknifes and spokeshaves mounted that you will see to the far right side of the full on viewed pics.

3. Added my small bench and sawhorse that I had made a ways back which now makes me up and running to work on things…although….this is my main project…lol….but I have something in the think tank hopefully to share

4. Made a small indent on the far left once more….mounting the nice 3 new mortice chisels I recieved for christmas. (Thanks to my precious Jenn)

I would say that is what would be NEW AND UPDATED in seeing these so for the moment. No worries….I am nuts and will have more…lmao!!

I really am thankful for the space, surrounded by pine trees and a fairly heavily wooded area.

It’s turning out to be a fun and hardworking endeavour, It is nice to share with the fellow LJ’S.

I hope this may reach anyone new to the world of handtools and traditional woodwork or woodwork of the more electric persuasian with an interest to learn more….. and if so I say enjoy, explore and cherish the shavings.

Thanks for all of your comments and inspirational works….be well friends!

Joe, I could be off base, but from these pics you must be the guy who put the “hand” in hand crafted. Very nice!

You’re coming right along with it.

Looking at those drawknives makes me wanna get up and go “pull” on some wood.

The shop is looking good.
