Here's My Workshop!

I have a very minimalist shop and prefer to work with tools that can be found in the average home shop. I feel that my philosophy is well suited to folks who want to maximize their results with a minimum expenditure on equipment. My workshop is contained in one quarter of a 2-1/2 car garage (a 24 foot by 8 foot area) with lumber storage on wall racks on the "car side" of the garage.


All tools are on wheels so I can use the additional area by simply pulling a car out and using the open area as my work space.


I first developed an interest in woodworking about 30 years ago as a sideline to my main interest, musical instruments. My first serious woodworking project resulted from the desire to have a good acoustic guitar, which was beyond my ability to purchase at the time. I realized that they were in fact made by mere mortals such as myself, so I purchased the only two books I could find relating to guitar construction and made a pretty acceptable first instrument, still being played today by my daughter.

Since that time I've branched out and made many various types of musical instruments as well as a large portion of our home furnishings.
