Just the list of the machines has me drooling, with those tools, that wood, and those years of experience,
you should be having a good learning experience. Hope you have lots of fun in the shop.

That sounds like a fantastic opportunity for you not only to have some enjoyable work but to work for someone that sounds like it will be really enjoyable and fun. Be careful ofTool Drool also..If you start drooling on all those tolls they might rust.

Thanks for ALL the support, I will keep ya posted as the days go by. Yes the tool drool is going to take time to get over. BUT, I will have the chance to use these without laying out BIG bucks.
