When we moved to Portland from the Oregon coast 7 years ago we found a house where I would be able to build a new studio. I had always had my studio at home so it seemed logical to continue to do so. As a temporary measure until I could build a studio on our property I rented a space on the second floor of the U-Store-It Building. As far as I can tell the building has been dedicated to some form of woodworking since it’s construction. I would guess there are a dozen working studios with occupants ranging from artists to furniture makers to machinists. I appreciate the pool of knowledge available for questions, the help if you need it or lending help if needed, and good friendships that have resulted through my stay. Now I don’t believe I would like to have my studio off on it’s private little own. Here is a gallery of some of my friends from the “hole” – you may know some of them.
