Above is the family barn that holds my home shop. Built in the late 19th century it is a post and beam structure with more modern framing elements added over the last century of use. It is pretty handsome on a crisp autumn day! Below is an inside shot. It has been reorganized since this picture, but still gets cluttered with tools and projects.
My favorite shop anvil is a 133 kilogram (270lb.) Kohlswa anvil. I am the second owner. It is a "London" or American pattern anvil with a large horn and long heel as well as a long, narrow face. Made of cast steel it is a fine anvil and rings like a bell.
Here is my largest shop vice. It is a Blacksmiths' leg vice. It has 6" jaws and is a good heavy tool.
These core tools plus a forge, hammers, and hand tools make up the basics my traditional workshop.
I have a number of more modern tools as well, but we will look at those another time! Until next time, try not to have too many irons in the fire!
