My passion for making things turned a former two car garage into the Hermit Shed. Originally it was home to woodworking equipment including a Powermatic 8” jointer, Powermatic Artisan table saw, drill presses, belt sander and generally the types of things you would expect to find in a cabinet shop.

Gradually I developed an increasingly serious allergy to freshly cut wood and redirected my interest to metalworking. Now the space is packed quite densely with a wide range of things that change the shape of metal.
