Detail of the sink area. The tile highlights (turtles, frogs, etc.) were designed and created by my cousin, Rocky Mann, a potter from Bar Harbor, Maine
1982 Schwinn World Sport Build
This is my workshop in our old house. Really loved it, and miss it.
I'm not a professional designer by a long shot, just someone who enjoys creating things. Some recent projects are the remodeling of our old home and my ever-present bikes. I love to get out in my workshop and build single speed and other kinds of bikes with old-school steel frames I pick up on eBay. I call these and other projects "Marshall Design." I also enjoy what I would call utilitarian design. By that I mean making the most of whatever it is you have. We have since moved and I've now got a new garage workshop that is even more spacious and practical, and I kept my custom-built oak workbench. Love my woodworking, but also learning how to weld so I can incorporate more of an industrial look in my designs. Click on the images for an enlarged view.

Stripped, stained, and finished, with new brushed nickel knobs, SS Hairpin legs, and green felt-lined upper drawer.
Workshop in my new house. It is my Zen Retreat. I can spend hours in here doing nothing but sanding.
