Welcome! I'm starting this blog to document my electronics hobby. Ever since my son Ian was born I've had to put my other hobby, woodworking, on hold. I decided to get back into electronics, a hobby of mine since I was young, which is much quieter.
One half of our unfinished basement is reserved for my woodshop. I decided to take over the other half of the basement for electronics, and repurposed some old storage furniture for a work space. Above is a picture of my electronics workbench. Since most of the projects I have planned require quite a bit of firmware I've set up a computer on the left. On the top shelf are various components. On the middle shelf I have my old Radio Shack multimeter, a converted computer power supply, an Aoyue 2900 Soldering Station, a PanaVise 350 Work Center. On the bottom I have various hookup wires and tools. Off to the right I have more storage.
If it weren't for all the unused baby stuff lying around, my basement would be my version of a perfect "man cave."
