« Part 5: "A Poor Man's Workshop", well it fits. Part 6 of The building of a basement workshop. series no next part

Well, the “Poor Mans Workshop” is nearing completion.

Now, all I have to do is start filling it with sawdust and woodchips.

Which will be dusty soon enough, due to the chip carved keepsake box orders that are coming in.

Thanks everyone who followed the basement transformation.



-- While teaching a class, a gentlemen once asked me: "When chip carving an intricate design, what do you do when you are almost finished and the wood breaks off?" I replied "Cover the kids ears."

Some people have shops as big as barns and don’t produce anything while others work out of their hall closets and make a lot of stuff. It’s the desire to work with wood that’s most important and even though your shop is small, it looks like a great place for woodworking.
