I've "winged it" and built some nice things, e.g. house, cabinets, furniture, using the most basic of tools over the past 30 years. I have collected a few firsts (for me) such as a 6" jointer and lunchbox planer and hope to start bulding a new shop by the end of the year. The current shop is very tight at 16' X 24' and everything in the world has to be stored there. I hope to glean a few ideas about shop layout efficiency from you LJs out there. It has already been great fun just seeing the different ideas on making tools mobile, since very few have all the space they need! Look forward to interaction with and maybe even offering a little something to the LJ community.
