Reed Woodworking – est. 1982
Welcome to my little world.
This 24×28 shop has been a work in progress for the last 23 yrs.
I’ve produced a lot of cabinetry and furniture in this little shop, not as much as some of you guys,
but this is a side company to a remodeling business.
Plus, I get to build cool stuff for my house.
And it’s a nice place to display my collection of refurbished hand planes.
I always wanted to expand and buy a CNC machine, a panel saw, a full size 3 sided shaper, a bigger DC,
a drum sander, a bigger drill press, a full size 15” planer, a 12” jointer, a sliding table saw, a downdraft sanding center, a decent spray booth, a Kapex Miter box, a Festool track saw, ....... shall I go on?
After all these years, it turns out I didn’t really need any of those tools. But I sure wanted them.
If I had gone full scale and opened up a commercial shop (I almost did) I would’ve lost everything.
My full time remodeling business is what makes this part time shop possible.
Best part is, I can work on a project late and the “boss” doesn’t mind. I’m home.
If it gets too hot, I jump in the pool. How many commercial shops have a pool?
Kasey Boy the shop dog passed away at 15 1/2 last year.
He loved being right there in the middle of the action as long as he had something in his mouth.
A tennis ball was his favorite, but a piece of wood was OK too.
I still look behind me so I don’t step on him. Sure miss my ol’ buddy.
The 12×12 shed is great for cords, air hoses, power tools and supplies.
If you need help with a simple furniture repair or just want to have a beer and chat,
Stop on by…. The shop is always open.
