WELL I HAVE A NEW SHOP! I MOVED TO FT BENNING GA AND I LIVE ON POST. I WASNT TOO SURE ABOUT WHAT I WOULD END UP WITH BUT I AM HAPPY TO SAY THAT I HAVE A ONE CAR GARAGE 10X18. THE DOWN SIDE IS THAT IT HAS NO POWER AND THEY WONT ALLOW ME TO PUT POWER IN IT SO FOR THE NEXT 2 YEARS I AM AN UMPLUGGED SHOP. I KIND OFF LIKE THE IDEA BUT NOT TO SURE ABOUT THE PLANING DOWN OFF THE ROUGH LUMBER BUT I CAN PAY TO GET THAT DONE. SO WE WILL SEE HOW THIS WORKS OUT. I HOPE TO POST SOME PICS OF MY NEW SHOP SOON.

I would recommend that you see if Ft Benning have a woodworking hobby shop. Most bases I am familiar with have both excellent and well equipped automotive and woodworking shops.l

Maybe a removable surface-mount run with 3 blocks of receptacles along one wall?

Looking forward to seeing the pics. Extensions cords work well.

Congratulations; post some pictures of it. You’ll certainly be able to hone up your hand tool skills even though you already do very good work. I’ve looked at some of your projects. Nice work.
