It has been quite a while since I posted any recent photos of our shop. I have been busy making saw dust, so it was a good time to shoot some pix, before picking up all the clutter.
This will be a short one, as I must get busy and update the blog with some stuff ( http://blog.sandal-woods.com/ ). If you are interested, please see the rest of the photos at the blog in the next few days.
The general setting of the shop is as follows - lots of huge trees, and LOTS of leaves to take up late in the Fall (91 loads, each load = 200 gallons, of leaves, in 2006; thus, must use a cyclone rake):
We now move to the inside. Sandy is the resident scroll saw, carving, and turning partner.
1. I decided to start off with bird's eye views of Sandy's area, which comprises the scroll saw, the carving bench and the cabinet for her carving tools, then the lathe area with the sharpening tools.
2. A floor-level angle on the scroll saw-carving area:
3. The lathe area, with the sharpening station beyond the fiber drum (which contains shavings from the lathe, to bury the turnings in them, and to help slow down the drying):
4. Her new sharpening station will look like this:
5. Some of Sandy's stash of turning blanks:
I will post a few more, later.
But, if you get a chance, please visit the blog for the remainder of the photos of the shop, in the next few days . I hope you enjoyed seeing these few pix!
