As you can see, I’m not done working wood. However, I may be a bit more “Galootish” in the future. This tool box and portable power tools plus a ShopSmith are what there are. It will all have to go in a storage shed for now. I will have to get a Work Mate or some such but I can still do most things.The tool box is built from what ever was in the shop. I put feet on it because it will have to stand alone on the floor most of the time. I now have a “Hobby” instead of a business.

That should do the job. Looks good.

Looks like you have most everything you need there. Where’s the on/off switch on that brace?

You may find that you enjoy it (woodwork) more now that it’s a hobby, and you don’t have your livelihood depending upon it.

The tool cabinet is very nice.

My bet is a hobby is a lot more fun than a business. Good therapy.

Nice tool cabinet, Thomas. This type holds a ton of tools in a relatively small footprint. I agree that you may enjoy it more now as a hobby. You can work on projects at your leisure instead of working against deadlines.

When I saw the first picture, I couldn’t wait to see what was behind curtain number one Monty…

How many people does it take to lift that thing?

That is a well thought out tool cabinet, and you have it very well equipped. You’re going to do well indeed. A similar analogy would be the old saying among boaters…....how they progress up thru larger and larger boats, and then step down to a canoe…..........and find that boating has never been so much fun.

I’ve had my Shopsmith in a garage shop of less than 250 sq ft for almost thirty years. I’ve never felt deprived, nor was there any project that I could not tackle. I’m sure that you will continue to do great work.

Best to ya. Keep us posted.
