  • My Shop
    Some detailed information about my workshop.
    Power Tools
    Most of the usual tools. Adding every week.
    My Shop
    I started with an idea to build a 600 sq. ft. wood shop on a concrete pad, to compliment my metal shop. Then things got carried away. "FrankenBarn" is now nearly 11 times bigger than originally planned, at 6,400 sq. ft, with four floors and an elevator.
  • Woodworker Information
    A few details about myself.
    Biography
    Hi, I'm a single guy, 57, living in Franklin, KY., USA! I have two hobby workshops on my property. One of them is a 1,100 sq. ft. metal shop, and the other is a 1,900 sq. ft. wood shop, in a 6,400 sq.ft. building.

    I have two Samson 510 CNC plasma tables (one of them is converted into a dedicated ROUTER table), and one PlasmaCam DHC2 4x4 plasma table that does both plasma and routing, as well as engraving, painting and more. I have installed a router in place of the plasma torch on the one Samson 510 and I am using it for all sorts of things. The other Samson 510 table is now assembled and waiting for electricity to be added to the workshop!
    Location
    Franklin, KY.
    Interests
    hobby shop projects, motorcycle touring, politics. I am working to make my shops generate a nice side income at some point.
    Woodworking Experience (Years)
    Very little, compared to most people. Still learning. Still pulling splinters out of my fingers!
    First Name
    Joe
    Country
    United States
