Santa's Workshop - 1998 Flashback - West Wind Hardwood


Jan’s Shop – Snug as a Bug Winter 1998 – All Photos by Jan T Nielsen

Jan has been censored for having to much fun loving what we do; for wanting to share our passion; for mentoring others who share our desire to work with wood.  So here’s a little blast from a Past Day Off back in the winter of 1998.  By the way, for those who read this and censor, the tools are an accumulation of 3 generations of woodworkers; including the wife’s side of the family. That’s almost 400 years worth!
