I am an amature woodworker that is learning in leaps and bounds(and a lot of stumbles) I work in architectural salvage for a longtime friend. I have access to lots of salvaged wood, moldings and miscellaneous wooden parts that I love to re-purpose and make a little extra cash. My shop is an 18 x 18 portion of our smaller warehouse. I'm not fully equipped as yet, but my shop is always evolving. Even if I don't have what I need, I find a way, build a jig, or well, flat out beat it into submission. If you are stubborn enough, you can make anything happen.

Thanks Bill. I’ve found that woodworkers as a whole are generally good down to earth people. I think working with wood keeps us well centered.
