Many Guild members have invested much effort and sometimes considerable expense in their personal workshops.  And are quite proud of the result.  It doesn’t matter how many square feet are involved so long as the woodworker can safely perform the tasks at hand for their project.  Some of the smallest shops are also the best examples of creative use of space, optimization, and economies of effort.

Would you like to show your shop?
