Over the road truck driver/ owner-operator.
I am a general fix-it guy, I love to take it apart and fix it. I also am an upholsterer (which are usually notorious wood butchers!!). I've always wanted to build furniture and cabinets, sheds, you name it. I just have very limited time at home.

I work out of a 20X20 two car garage that has all my tools and half the world's collective junk in it (a situation I am remedying). So far my tools list is strong ong hand tools, but growing in power. I'm considering a Smithy Supershop. I tend to not be a tool snob, I do shop at Harbor Freight sometimes and have really not had a problem with their stuff other than their air tools, which seem to be a crap shoot whether they will work or not. I own a lot of Craftsman stuff.
I've never taken wood shop, so I learn by watching (Youtube is great!) and reading.
I'm planning on remodeling the sleeper in my truck soon, as the factory cabinets suck. Plastic and poorly designed. My plans are for a wood floor, a solid panel partition separating the cab from the living quarters,revamped closet and fridge/microwave cabinet.I've got a mere 6ftX8ft to utilize, so it must be similar to a sail boat, using every bit of space effectively. whew!!!
