I’m a retired power plant worker from upstate New York, Canandaigua, who has been interested in woodworking for many years. I like to build furniture for my two daughters’ and their families. I work out of an attached two car garage which I have to share with my wife’s car, seems to be a common problem we all have. Fortunately I spend more time in there then her car. I have acquired a number of stationary machines, all on mobile bases and hand power tools over the years. I am also lucky to live twenty minutes away from Bristol Hardwoods so I just use them as my lumber storage area. My wife and fellow woodworker Nancy does most of the finishing on the projects we have built. With her interest in our projects it makes it easier to get that new gadget you just can’t live without. I will be adding pictures and a description of the shop soon. Take care and thanks for checking out my page here at lumberjocks.

Dick, although power equipment is not my cuppa tea … this is a good lookin’ shop. You seem to have the mobile base system down to a science. Perhaps you could talk your wife into a Smart Car or maybe a Vespa!

You have a very nice shop. It has lots of nice equipment and plenty of organizational storage. I love the drawers; they are always good for tools and they also give you some work top space for some of your equipment. The work bench can also serve as an out feed table. You have done a real nice job on everything. Congratulations.

Ron,
My wife will not give up her stall but on the positive side she lets me buy the tools I want

Pottz,
I never took the time to learn how to post on Lumberjocks until recently. Will be catching up on my postings and projects I’ve made to date, quite a few.
