Hi all and thanks for the warm welcome. I’m 62y/o, retired from the US Navy and just getting back into woodworking. We recently moved to southwest OH from Beaufort, SC to get my wife closer to her family in Canada. We are in the process of setting up our second garage as a hobby wood shop. Presently we have a Rigid TS, bandsaw and chop saw. Also a new Delta 6” jointer, Dewalt 13” planer, and a Jet 22/44 sander and a Jet 1100 DC system. Plus numerous small power and hand tools. In the past I have done a lot of woodcarving and custom leatherworking. I am in the process of deciding on final tool placement so I can install a main line and drops for the DC. I have a few photos of progress to date that I will try to post later.
