I'm often engaged in one project or another here at TallPineTree. I have a large workshop where I can do casework and millwork and woodworking of any flavour. My shop also has a "metal" area where I can do metal work. I have three forges with hand-cranked blowers, a 1440 Metal Lathe, a Milling machine with a 9"x42" table, a stick welder, a MIG welder (with an argon/carbon dioxide gas mixture), oxygen/acetylene torches, and assorted tap and die sets and other small metal tools. I also have a very large compressor and air tools for woodworking as well as for metalworking.
