Workshop Information

Location
United States
As I was looking through the blogs of others I noticed this workshop section and decided to add it to mine. I do not have any pictures as of yet but I will post very soon. My workshop is actually in my home and it is "my space" It is small compared to the others I have looked at so far. Plus it is an odd shape . I would say it is around 25 by 8 . The size makes me no nevermind as it simply is not important in my case. I have everything I want and need and then some. 1 case is a couple routers my husband has purchased that I simply have not used yet. It is something I do want to learn and definitely should and will but at this time they are still sitting in the box. My 1st scroll saw I got (the one my hubby got me) when I broke my knee was a Harbor Frieght one that cost $56.00 and I LOVED it! I wore that saw out to it's very core. In retrospect I realize what hell I had put the thing through . Since my 1st, I now have 7 scroll saws and though I do not own any of the higher end saws, at this time I am happiest with a craftsman and use it the most. I also am a sanding nut and probably have more kinds, sizes etc. of sanders than should be allowed, yet I cannot for the life of me get that awesome smooth finish I so very much want, but with each project I see better results so I am not bitching, but if I did have a bitch it would be that I did not find this passion I have found with the woodwork and everything that goes with it say 30 years ago. So for now this is how I will leave it, because if I were to go upstairs and take a picture right now you would see a mess, a mess of intarsia pieces, and a scroll project. I always have more than one thing going on as I just can't stick with one at a time or I would burn out. So again I would like to thank all who have been so welcoming. PEACE!!! Allison

My mom bought a Hegner scroll saw about ten years ago and used it once… it's sitting in her garage in CA screaming for someone to make use of her… One of these days I'll plan a rescue mission to bring her here to my shop and finally give her the use she deserves!

Browsing through your project pages i am impressed by the quality and originality of your designs. They remind me a bit of a booth I saw one year at the 'Harvest Festival' craft fair in CA… Keep up the great work!

Allison, i am new to this forum and saw a post from a chico person which led me to your 'home'. I live in janesville and do turning and boxes for a hobby. I teach at the elementary school for a living. Did I see some of your work at a show I did in Susanville a month or so ago. If I see you a any show, I will say hello.
