Workshop Information

Location
Canada
My workshop is about 700 square feet in the basement of my home, plenty of size for the work I do. As always, more space would be better, but it would likely just provide more room for clutter. have recently completed an upgrade to Shop v2.0, with new benches along the wall and a wall cabinet for my hand tools.

This shop has been in place for 19 years and is like a pair of furry slippers for me - very comfortable.

I love everything I see in the photos with one tiny exeption. It really is a small thing, but the house in your logo is out of perspective. I say this because I am an Architectural illustrator & when I see something like that it really jumps out at me. All of your vertical lines ( sides, left & right,corners etc.) should all be paralell. If you are trying for whimsical, ignore this. Since I illustrate buildings for a living ( or did, before the economy collapsed) when I see incorrect perspective, I can't help but speak up. Makes me feel like my eyes aren't working right. Anyway, I told you it was tiny.I just thought maybe you'd want to know. Probably no one else will ever notice or comment ! That is a really great shop. Enjoy working in it.

hello,

couple of responses:

dnick: very funny observation, that house looks like it does as it is from a real building, have a look at this picture and you will see why :) This is the logo I use for my guitar labels, it is an iconic building here in Nova Scotia.

cabmaker: The bandsaw is a Craftex, supplied by Busy Bee here in Canada, I think its just another one of those Taiwan made units sold under a house brand like many others.

I am laughing. It looks like it got hit by a bomb! What is making it collapse in on itself? Well you did a good job. You can see my involuntary retirement leaves me with too much time on my hands.

Richard: That is a cool shop! Your lathe tools look very impressive lined up right there.

P.S. I like your logo-the cool story behind it is awesome. Amazing that it is from a real building! (That's what a regular house looks like from inside the fishbowl I guess.)

@dnick-When you have woodworking tools, it isn't "involuntary retirement", it's "involuntary self-employment".

Great looking shop, lots of organization, nice collection of planes! Is the shoulder plane a Norris?

I've been up Nutby Mountain. I'll have to look for that house next time I'm up there.
Great looking shop.

Richard,

Very nice shop. My first thought was the same one that I had when I look at your tool chest. "where did he get all those fantastic tools?" Then I read you description above and understood. I have only been at this for a couple years.
