Thanks to all for the warm welcome. As I think I mentioned in my first post, I have lurked here for quite some time. I ran across the site by accident and looked over a bed that was similar to what I had planned to build. My wife decided against that one, so I will keep looking. My main problem is that I have been reduced to a 10×16 shop with no electricity or room for my `78 Unisaw or bandsaws. Right now I am using the newer DeWalt jobsite saw and my Festool ATF55. And then they have to be used outdoors during good weather.

I am thinking of selling off the bigger stuff and doing more hand work. I still use the small stuff for home repairs to keep me sane what with teaching behaviorally challenged students.

Thanks again for the welcome.

I guess deleting and then saving does not remove this duplicate post. Sorry.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.
God Bless
