Hi all I'm a retired pharmacist. I have spent my entire 50+ years in search of my perfect shop. I've built so many and the moved I've lost count. And I'm doing it again. Now that I'm retired I plan to make this the last and finally make some projects of beauty instead of just workshop useful projects. ...but. Before I do I'll have to build the next shop. ...thus my dilemma.
I have all the machines that I want but always looking for jigs and accessories. YouTube has been perfect for ideas for that. I especially like the jay bates, stumpy nubs, and pask makes. There are many more.
My future dreams are to get into bowl and segmented turning. There is one guy on YouTube near me in Indiana pa that does some fantastic work in segmented turning. I bought a oneway 24/36 a few years ago and really haven't done much with it. That will change!

I also collect antique tools. I still peruse the auction sites periodically (everyday) looking for some special trinket or two or three(hi my name is toolman and I am a tooloholic).

In my next shop I would like it to be big enough to be able to start some kind of a "CHEERS" of woodworking where some like minded folks could just come over shoot the bull and build things. I guess sort of a woodworking club of sorts. So if you're in the Altoona pa area and would like to do something of the sort. Pm me!
Well enough rambling if you have any questions shoot me a message

Welcome to lumberjocks Rick! I’ll be waiting to see what you turn. That’s an awesome lathe you have.
