Garage shop

My shop includes two areas, a garage and a room in my house. The garage is where I do most of the "dirty work" with power tools including a table saw, band saw, surface planer, drill press, jointer/planer, and drum sander. The inside shop is where most of the assembly, fine woodworking, finishing, and setup takes place.

Garage shop

I also have an office studio for writing, playing, and recording.
