Show Us Your Shop!

by Tom Soles
Washington, D.C.

This is my shop in the heart of a residential section of Washington, D.C. (about 4 blocks from the Vice President's home.) I am a retired school teacher and spend much of my time in my shop working on many different things. It is heated with a wood stove and electric heat. The shop started its life as a sculpture studio and evolved into a private woodworking shop. Much of my work is spent on the restoration of Stanley hand planes and Disston hand saws.
