My workshop is a 70 m2 space. It isn’t well aired, nor well illuminated, nor well placed. But it’s my only realm: there I have learned some things about wood, woodworking, myself and others. I find it so enriching that I would pay for it, actually it happens some months.
My machinery is ten years old: a ¿compound? six function machine (Kitty 640) and some cool tool (Festool, Makita, Dewalt, ...). Just two principles relative to it: the first, and most important, never buy chinese (or you’ll have to buy it again) and second, keep it right and use it savely.
I try to store at least wood or hardware as possible.
When I begin a job I have a few simple ideas clear: one, it´s always a new challenge; two, if the term approaches and the job isn’t yet finished, I inform the client, because I find it´s better to wait for the right result, then to get the piece in time.
On the 28th of July, 2009, I closed the door of that space. So my workshop has become something more etherical that goes around now with me.
