Art Studio / Workshop at Green Canyon Eco Art Resort

Green Canyon Eco Art Resort is a scenic tropical getaway located in a 72acre property that sits between two mountains. With only 15acres developed, it has a sense of open space for various events, team building and special occasions.

The location was formerly an area devastated by the 1991 volcanic eruption. Through careful planning and respecting the land, they managed to plant and ball more than 3000 trees and 10,000 plant species. We also utilize the boulders, and volcanic ash within the property for landscaping and construction materials.

The resort is proud to have a unique 47 room art hotel that was redesign from a former farm warehouse. Besides the modern rustic architecture, most of the wooden furniture, accent pieces and wall art were made in the property using up-cycled old wood. The hotel also sells one of a kind art furniture pieces featured inside the rooms and the lobby which I make in the property.

Green Canyon has a three floor pavilion built and embedded on the foot of a mountain. It houses the function rooms, restaurant, a large main function hall, and a covered view deck. In addition to the outdoor resort pool next to the Pavilion, other amenities include a large garden, a family-friendly wave pool, 800ft high mountain trail, biking, a hanging bridge, rentable 4×4 ATV rides and bikes, and an organic farm.

All wooden items and artwork in the resort are made from my studio in the property. My workshop, called the Studio House, is sits by the river and is one of the main attractions in the resort property. Its is roughly a 900 sq meter space with a showroom, a library / design room, woodworking shop, wood inventory and a large rentable events space. We are open to hotel guests and visitors on Fridays and Saturday. Other days are by appointment only.

Here are some tools in my workshop that help me with my projects:

2 Jigsaws / 3 Drill Press / 9” Bandsaw / 14’’ Bandsaw / 17’’ Bandsaw / Jet Dust Collector / 4 Table Saws / 2 Jointers / Jet Drum Sander / 12.5’’ Portable Thickness Planer / 15’’ Grizzly Thickness Planner / 2 Hand Planers / Wheel Sander / 3 Circular Saw / 4 Corded & 5 Cordless Drills / 2 Miter Saws / 80 Different Pieces of Carving Chisels / 3 Grinders / Automatic Sharpening System / 2 Hand & 2 Stationary Belt Sanders / 3 Routers / Power Feeder / 40’’ Wood Turning Lathe / 2 Spiral Saws / 2 Disk Sanders / 3 Nailers / Scroll Saw / 3 Compressors / 2 Reciprocating Saw / 20’’ Chain Saw / 24’’ Chain Saw / 36’’ Chain Saw / Woodmizer / 20’ convan kiln dryer

Nico, let me welcome you to LJs. It is good to have you on board as a member of the group.

How about posting some pictures of your shop when you get a chance. Tours of other shops are always interesting to see.

I have to repeat Eric’s Wow! That is a stunning shop that you have. I would love living in there as well. You have a wonderful shop space and an enviable collection of tools.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop and, if I ever get over there, you can be sure I will look in on you. This would make an ideal vacation (my wife may have different ideas, though). :)

It is sometimes said that no shop is too big…I’m beginning to wonder. Eighty thousand square feet is maybe too big. You must get a workout just moving from machine to machine. I will say that your collection of wood is impressive and I love your furniture laminations. Really nice stuff.

What a unique and wonderful environment your studio offers to artists and craftsmen alike! A very tempting excuse to visit the beautiful Phillipines!
