Here are a few pictures of my carving shop. It is a 12 foot by 16 foot room in the basement. I have a 1hp Jet dust collector for power carving. The carving bench is a six foot long piece of counter top. I also have a dedicated painting and finishing area. All of my animal carvings are airbrushed so I also have a mini spray booth I built for that. The desk is opposite the carving bench and is where I do a lot of pattern work and study on the subject I am carving. I have numerous books and cd reference materials for research and making patterns.
