1. Welcome. I am glad you were picked up by the Unplugged feed. It looks like a nice cozy place to work/play/be creative. I work in about a 6 foot by 10 foot part of my garage. Though cozy, for hand tools I find it to be adequate. I’ve resisted the power tools for mostly the same reasons you have. I want the same ones you do for the same reasons. Luckily, I have found a few local places that for a fee will get things S4S for me and for now that seems to work. Looking forward to seeing your various projects.

  2. I’ve seen your name before (Stoch. Geom.) – maybe in comments of other blogs. Looking forward to seeing more of your work. And thanks for the small shop tour. We, who work in cramped spaces, really need to keep things organized so that we don’t go mad. Speaking of that, it’s time for me to get into the small shop (approx 10 x 10 feet).

  3. What a nice functional, well laid out set of hand tools. Truly form following function. Nice examples of your work, too. Looking forward to seeing more of your goings-on in the future. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Congratulations Mark! The Unplugged Shop is my breakfast time reading most weekday mornings.
    Thanks also for the shop tour- nice to see more pics of where it all goes on.

  5. I had seen your blog while you were building your workbench but failed to put it in my favorites, then didn’t find you anymore. I just have looked at your last year activity. You have been busy. Happy to find you in The Unplugged Shop which I look at every day.
    My working floor space is also about 2m X2m (including the 1.5 X 0.6 m workbench) but with some room to move longer boards at bench level.
    You might want to make a kind of safety valve for your dust collection bucket .

    Thanks Sylvain, funny you should mention that, I just bought a new (smaller) dust drum and was planning on doing exactly that to it.
