Thanks Wayne The garage was about a mile away at the neighbors house so we used 2 farm tractors and a hay wagon to bring it to my house.
Then i built a floor in it and added 6 ft to the length of it.
It sure beats working in my kitchen . lol

I never give nail guns much thought when it comes to woodworking, but I guess you are rally in the construction business if only on a much smaller scale.

Good to see your shop, John.

Thanks Wayne and Don.
Don
I used to frame houses for 20 years and most of that time i never used nail guns .
Then 5 years ago i permanently injured my arms so i find using nail guns much easier.
I use a 16 gage finish nailer the most.

Hi John,

This is a nice looking shop that you have to work in. I can appreciate the extension cords. I have to move outside when I need to cut (or risk getting yelled at for getting sawdust all over the shop floor) so I have extension cords strung all over the place. You have a nice set of tools as well.

Thanks for the post.

Hey Buddy;

Nice amount of space to play in!

Looks like you’re not completely settled in yet. Takes a while, huh.

Have fun!

As much as I like my shop, I really like the old rustic feel you have. You will have years of enjoyment out of it, I’m sure.

Congratulations.
