Greetings Lumberjocks,

Two years ago I finally got a space for my own. The basement of MY own house! Later I will explain how the shop has grown, but for now, I will just say, how great it is to have a space to express my creative side. Financial limitations (child support – love and support my kids always – but VERY expensive) have plagued me for years (and still do) but I have managed to aquire a decent collection of tools of a budget.

I appreciate all the expertice found on the Lumberjocks site and I have to check EVERY day! Thanks to Martin for a great site….

Thanks for reading – the next post will have photos!
