Could have used a bit more light in the beginning, but worth seeing. I am always amazed at what you do in the room available to you.

Thanks for the tour Rick. I am glad to see I am not the only one that has multiple projects going on and an exploding collection of wood.

Did you ever notice that if your not careful your wood supply can take over your shop, not that its ever happened to me :-) ....... I know its only a 3” x 6” pc. of wood but it is mahogany and I hate to throw it in the wood burning furnace , I just might need that pc. someday along with the other 300 I have stashed away. It does look like a nice shop under all that wood!! oh ya and it seems like I have at least 2 hours of cleanup for every 1 hour of work LOL!

Nice Shop, Rick!

Do you have a “vice” or “holder” for your carving work? A buddy of mine is getting into carving and was asking about one.
