Shop Tour: Tim Coleman
Tim Coleman’s shop is filled with beautiful machinery—some vintage, some modern—well-loved hand tools, and more than a few of his favorite bicycles.
Tim Coleman has been building fine furniture since the 1980s, and the gorgeous sample pieces around his workshop hint at what made the final cut in his labors of love. But one corner is dedicated to another deep passion: cycling. A number of well-tuned, well-loved bikes dominate the wall between his bench area and most of his power tools. Coleman guesses he’s ridden most every path in his area, both beaten and less so, since moving to western Massachusetts in 1989.
