In The WorkShop

Located only 3 blocks from the "bicycle freeway of Seattle" (Burke-Gilman), cyclists flow by all day as I work.  They inspire me to keep working; along with the friendly neighbors who visit me with compliments rather than complaints (angle grinders can be noisy).  Here are a few action shots:
