No it's not my workshop! It belongs to Kent Adkins and you can see a video of it here http://www.popularwoodworking.com/woodworking-blogs/chris-schwarz-blog/european-dreaming-a-visit-to-kent-adkinss-shop
It's a lovely building with a huge amount of space and just look at that machinery!
I've had a few conversations with Kent recently and he sent me these pictures of a current project in butternut. This is not a wood I'm familiar with in the UK but apparently it's a cousin of walnut.
Here is a magnificent figured board of butternut with some nice figuring for the top. It measures an impressive 82'' x 22'', well if you have that sort of machinery you might as well make the most of it!
