    I've been busy with school and with getting this space good to go. It's a whole different mind set than photography.

    Wow. Great looking shop. I am jealous. Wishing I had the room at my place for that.

    Congrats. I hope you enjoy your shop as much as I think you will.

    You woodworkers are something else, BTW. I was watching the New Yankee Workshop once, and he was talking about how they needed to make this really difficult notch in this piece of wood, and then he says, "And to do this we'll just go over to our (complicated notch whatever) machine here." This whole machine did nothing but put notches in boards! I swear nowadays there's a machine for everything! But its worth spending the money on the fancy equipment to see the end result be as beautiful and well-made as handcrafted hardwood furniture is.

    BTW, whatever you do, don't cut off your shutter finger! Use a Kevlar finger guard or something! :)

    Very nice shop. I'm slightly interested in woodworking as well. I say slightly because I don't have the funds to get it all started.

    I just pulled the motor off of my tablesaw 2 days ago. That's the most I've ever done for woodworking. The motor quit on me shortly after aquiring it, thus no woodworking.

    A coworker told me about the tablesaw and told me the price was right as she wanted rid of it. She told me to come pick it up. It's a Powr-Kraft from 1956 I've learned just the other day. I cracked the non-working motor apart this past weekend and the wires had all fallen apart inside.

    That place will be great for chopping up dead bodies in to tiny bite-size pieces.

    Oh congrats, my grandfather did woodworking off to the side and you could tell his woodworking shop was his refuge from all the busyness of life. My uncle is a carpenter and is missing a finger and half so just watch out for that one though ;)

    Thanks JR for the good wishes on the trip to France, we leave tomorrow. I'll be at a wood design center for a week and then two weeks at a 'craftsman' shop. Should be a fun learning experience.

    As for the wood chips and sawdust, every machine is connected to a two horsepower dust collector and there is a 1 micron air filtration system hanging from the ceiling. The dust from the glues in plywood is a health hazard while the dust from some of the exotic woods will destroy lung tissue in pretty short order. Sweeping up the planer chips is a quiet way to wind down.

    A little curio cabinet or jewelry box made with zebrawood and some purple heart accents along with a palmwood inlay on the top would be very nice.
