here is a picture of my work place. nothing special. I currently planning to build a new work bench, but until then this is it.
sorry for the mess haven't cleaned up today.
as far as tools, i have a a normal straight set of chisels (Millar falls), there are about 8 in the set but for the size work i'm duing i only use the two smallest one.
the short brown handled ones are just a palm set i got from Lee Valley, i don't even know the name of the brand.
there are small silver tools, almost dentist like tools, which are mini chisels which i got at Lee Valley as well (like $9.00) they aren't great quality and will bend if used on harder woods, or if you use with a hammer.
a standard old box cutting knife with the blades you can break off at cirtain points.
a old rubber mattel, that isn't very rubbery any more, and the head will fall off every once in a while.
a pair of calipper, for the smaller stuff to make sure everything is the same size (or as close as possible)works well especailly when doing a pair of tikis like the cabinet handles.
a vise that isn't even screwed down, and a couple of files, sand paper, a chop saw when having to cut off the tikis from the dowl/baseball bat blank (so i do use a power tool)
i think that is it ( i have many other tolls but are not used for tikis.
