Reed Woodworks – est. 1982
Welcome to my little world.
This 24×28 shop has been a work in progress for the last 20 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 my side company to a remodeling business.
Plus I get to build cool stuff for my house
I’ve always wanted to buy a CNC machine, a panel saw, a full size 3 sided shaper, a drum sander, a bigger drill press, a full size planer, a downdraft sanding center, a spray booth,....... 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 have lost everything and gone bankrupt by now.
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 to hold. 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.
Where would we be without the men that share our passion for what we do?
Alberto is great to work with, very independent and I can always count on him.
The 12×12 shed is great to keep all the 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.
