I'm a workshop junkie.
I love whats in them as much as what comes out of them.
When I was a kid, my grandpa had a wonderful little shop of mostly homemade tools. If he needed something he made it. Magic. I would sit in there for hours and admire all those tools, hoping to know what to do with them someday.
I grew up thinking every man needed a workshop like that, and I have been working towards that goal my entire life. My first workshop was a loft in my dads very large truck shop, where I made my own homemade tools. I had a table saw that was an old circular saw mounted under a hunk of particle board, a small belt sander powered by a drill, a hokey little drill press that borrowed the drill from the sander, a router with its scary little table, a scavenged plywood workbench, and a few others. I was on my way.
Many years and a few shops later I am still trying to perfect that shop and what comes out of it. I still enjoy tinkering with the tools as much as producing things with them.
I enjoy many kinds of projects; cabinetry, furniture, carving, you name it. My problem is I like it all and never perfect any one thing.
Oh well guess I'm not there yet........
