In May, Senior
Editor Glen D. Huey and I went to visit Kent Adkins’s new shop in St.
Louis. Kent, an avid woodworker and surgical urologist, has spent the
last few years building a custom shop from the ground up and filling it
with best and safest machines he could find. Finger safety is
particularly important to surgeons.
The shop is, in a word, fantastic. And I’m jaded.
I wrote a story about our visit for the February 2011 issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine, but you can get a taste of the European awesomeness by watching this brief slideshow.
