I live, by myself thank you very much, in this little 2 bedroom 900 sq ft shop or is it a home?

One room is my main room where I put things together or a part. Drilling things would be one of the messiest things done in this room,  ..hugs32....: ) .

The green room is where I take my pictures and my Diamond Pacific  MT-4 vibe sits in a corner.  My A-R2 sits under the kitchen sink.  The sawing I do with my MK-145 making slabbets, I do outside where I have room for one thing, but water is near by so is electricity making clean up easy. I'll be so glad when it gets warm.

I plan to order "The Universal" 6" next week if any one has any input on that.

Enjoy my home, thanks for coming by.

Tim

Great set-up, thanks for sharing.

By the way, what do you photograph in the picture room. That chair gives the impression you have really, really big gems dunno or do you take images of other things?

I was wondering if any one would notice the skull.  First its not real :)  I got it about a year ago and depending what color paint i have in my hand i may spray is some.  One day It'll be finished, I'm not in a hurry with it.  Give me some time Bob, it'll look better over time...

I am some what of a neat freak, but keep in mind I'm just starting up and like I was saying most of my cutting i do out in the yard. Drilling small holes in stones doesn't make much of a mess. The pan of water helps me keep things local, around the bench anyway.

As a hobby I like taking pictures outside mostly, when its not freezing, spring is near Yeah!  I had the lights and all for years, family pics and have done a few weddings. Shooting close-up pictures is going to be a challenge I think.  The chair? are you talking about the one sitting on the table in the green room?

Thanks for having me here all.

I was wondering.........My Great Uncle plowed up a skull in the alfalfa field when I was a kid. It sat on the back bar at the local pub for years. Someone finally thought to send it down to the university. It turned out to be that of a 300 year gone 'Native American' Lady. I dug up a femur once while gold mining. That went back in the ground with a small ceremony.

LOL, thanks Mirkaba,

And as a matter of fact I was just in there taking some looks/shots at some "gaspeite Opal" quartz I just got out of the vibe. looks like ice cubes.  Now if I can snap a nice pic of them I'll post them for sure
