Paws Pad When Maws Mad
Well after 20 years; of puttering around in our two car garage; Miss america had had enough! She was tired of having to share the garage with my woodworking and endless saw dust I tracked into the house. This was an epiphony. So, in 2008 I built my cozy woodshop (11 ft. X 18 ft.). This was also when I discovered how useful Fine Wood Working.com was in the planning and construction of said sanctuary. There was an article that I saw in Fine Woodworking about a one car garage shop and it spoke to my situation. From that moment; as if a match had lit a fuse to a powder keg; I was on my way to build my slice of heaven. I had dabbled in wood working; but never seemed to catch the bug. Why was that? No dedicated space! The journey has been great! Thanks to all the great help from Fine Wood Working.com and those retailers that have provided all the tools and supplies. In 2009 I added an attached annex (12 ft. x 18 ft.) to house my 60 gallon compressor, cyclone dust collection, wood storeage racks and flameable liquids cabinets. The main machine and bench room is warmed by an electric heater and cooled by a small ac widow unit.
