Location: Sanger, TX

I'm a retired Navy Chief Petty Officer (March 2000) that's been dreaming about a shop of my own for nearly 3 decades. Now that I have one, I don't have the time I'd like to spend in it!

My dad passed away in January 2012 and I inherited a lot of his tools, including a 1956 Shopsmith MK V. I've up graded the headstock to the latest and greatest but have yet to fire it up, mainly because I have to learn what all the whiz-bang accessories are that my dad had bought over the years.

My last major project was a bed/storage space/desk for my daughter about 20 years ago. Made from plans from The Family Handyman magazine, it was built in a one car garage with nothing but a circular saw, jigsaw, sander, and assorted hand tools. I hope to be able to build furniture one day, but realize I'll need to learn my skills by building my shop.
