Although I’ve been doing my best to stay away from my shop, I can’t deny it’s utility, especially as a man-cave. I have every tool needed to take a tree and turn it into dimensional material, from chainsaw to card scraper.
It’s saved us lots of cash over the years. Unfortunately, it’s also provided a place to store all the crap that one picks up over a career, if I can call it that. It’s technically good crap, serviceable and fairly ordered in my own loose system. Read: I know it’s here somewhere!

Mission style sofa table, built from plans available through rockler.com
This is a scale mock-up of my new dining table.
Solid cherry legs and rails, plywood top with solid edge trim.
This was a good exercise in frame and panel construction. Stiles and panels bookmatched.
This was probably my most ambitious piece. Everything on it that could be bookmatched, was done so.
One for me, and two more for a friend. It’s a good place to sit while you watch your opponent beat you at nine ball.
Maple and mesquite billiard rack.
