Hi all

This is where I spend my days and where I do my own projects as well. My boss is very accommodating about this and I usually make him a wood gift or two through the year to say thanks.
We’re pretty well equipped, not missing anything really, though a veneer saw would be nice. The stereo plays loud, the fridge often has beer in it and the working neighbors are cool. Drop by if you’re in the hood.

Gene, this is a shop that any of us would have fun in. It is spacious, well organized and you have some nice tools to play with. Thanks for the tour. I had fun taking a look at the shop.

Now that is a shop. I could only imagine.

And a welcome to LJs. You have brought a new vigor and idea cloud to this humble place. It will be a pleasure to exchange ideas as the months and years pass.

Nice shop to have access to. Congratulations and welcome to Lumberjocks.

Well equipped indeed, lucky you. Someone recently asked me if I had to pick a different profession that what I do now, what would it be. I said woodworker and if I imagined a perfect shop it would be like the one you have there.

I see you have one of the most valuable tools in your tool kit…. lots of space. I like the pics on your tool box too.

Great looking shop Gene. That’s a solid looking work bench. How do you like working on it?
