    Pheil gouges and tool roll, and nice lamp, and great work bench.
    Yes, the tool holders are magnetic. I got the 23 inch version http://www.leevalley.com/us/wood/pag...26,48515,32153. I have four over the bench and one over my sharpening table. I could use a couple more, but a lot of my tools are on my bench or in the roll at any given time.

    I do have Pfeil, Henry Taylor, Dastra, Stubai, and a few others, but going forward, I'm buying Pfeil or the Stubai fishtails because. 1. I like how they are thinner and better ground. 2. Readily available. I waited a long time for some of the Taylor's and Dastra.

      For the type of carving that I do, I have a table in the living room (wood floors) and it works perfect. Most chips stay on the table, but I sweep up the ones on the floor. I keep it very neat. Also, my wife and I can visit while I carve and she can read or watch tv. It really works out good.

          I mentioned earlier that my work area is essentially in my lap, knife wood and chips. This time of year up here in the frozen north, I whittle inside, of course. I could whittle anywhere, but in the spirit of maintaining marital bliss I look for someplace without a rug- its easier to sweep. I also like to whittle barefoot- I can tell when chips are stuck to the bottom of my foot. I can't tell when they are stuck to the bottom of my sock, and end up tracking them all over the house.

            My "work area" is actually several: I carve at a dedicated desk inside, do my drilling and bandsawing/scrollsawing in an outside workshop,and have an outside workbench where I do painting and heavy-duty stuff.

              I found your description of the table in the living room as your work area particularly interesting. Very sociable. This is a good idea. I shall see what I can do. If you have a picture, send it along.

                      Hey Rodster
                      I read where you wanted a photo of my work area. I will try to get one online as soon as I can. I'm not real computer savvy, but I will try my best.
