I had this 16’ x 20’ barn style building built in ‘06 after I retired from GM. Had it wired, then installed insulation and drywall myself. I had a 6’ loft installed when the shop was built for overhead wood storage. Even installed an air conditioner/heater. I cheated myself on the wiring though. Didn’t realize at the time that I should have added a few more plug ins and 2 or 3 more 220 circuits. I’ve added a few tools since 06, notably the Grizzly GO555X bandsaw, Jet 6” jointer, Kreg router table with Triton 2 1/4 hp router and the Ridgid sander. The BOSS was nice to me the past two Christmases, birthdays and anniversaries. The Grizz is great for resawing, the jointer is way better than my old 4” Rockwell Delta and the Triton is one sweet router, everything in one box. Also as a gift from the BOSS is the DeWalt DW735 surface planer. Really love that thing. The drill press is a floor model Craftsman. My new SawStop Contractors table saw is a vast improvment over my old Craftsman 10” Flex-drive. I’m really enjoying the SawStop so far. Recieved a Delta 50-760 dust collector this past Christmas. I’ve got a Jet air cleaner hanging from the ceiling. Everything but the workbench is mounted on wheels for easy movement. The desk was made for me by my dad when I was in second grade. It’s the only thing I have that he built. While I’ve got a pretty nice shop and some really great tools I’m afraid my skills aren’t quite up to the tools. But, I’m working on it.
