Equipment list 

This site documents my glass work from 2000 to 2004. That year, we moved from Richland to Sequim, and set up the carving equipment. I've tried to return to carving, but I've had some setbacks (a series of mostly recoverable strokes) that have made carving a little too challenging - especially doing the really detailed work. I've decided to part with the equipment, and feel compelled to do a little more documentation while I still can - I've gotten many requests for more details, particularly on the cabinet.

I'll be parting with all my carving equipment during the summer of 2008. Irene will be helping coordinate the sale. Since I live in a remote area (Sequim) and won't be shipping anything, this will be of interest only to those within driving distance.

I've put a Picasa album on line here with a lot more information. Contact me or Irene for more information if you are interested.
