Part of a 30 x 60 garage (I'm trying to take over the remaining portions, but my wife is very sneaky).

A few details about me:

I am Imagination Unincorporated. When you run that name, I'll, pretty much, be your first hits. Unfortunately, what you will find is only a fraction of my efforts.

I take up housekeeping in the country called The State of Washington. More specifically, I'm in the eastern actually, central) portion. When you get to a place from which places you about one hour from five cities, all located degrees apart on a map, you're probably near my back door.

Wood, of course! Even more so if it's combined with granite, glass and mirror (etched and other). I'll even do a bit of carpentry, if it means improving the layout of my shop or home.

I enjoy dabbling a little in electrical and would enjoy getting back to some electronics, but there is only so much time.

Call it a hobby, but it's a serious one. I enjoy holding unruly public servant's feet to the fire and, since I was in administrative law for several years, I'm, occasionally, quite good at it.

Welcome from East of you. spokane valley.

Wow … ok, although I’m all for woodworkers to have an amazing workshop, I’m kinda cheering for the wife – claim your corner, lady ;)

-- Toxins Out, Nature In - body/mind/spirit

Ha! I am compelled, by unwritten family law, to leave room to park the car in one of the bays.

Try as I might to coax my wife out into the shop, with things like how much fun sanding is, she passes on the opportunity to spend much time there. She has figured out where the glue gun and sticks hide, the rolls of various kinds of tape, the glues, etc.
