That out feed table is awesome on the TS. Avoiding the horizontal surface clutter must me an illness and I have it bad. Watch for the 6’ tall metal shelving units with about 6 shelves, those are great for helping get the smaller stuff organized.

My problem is that a few years ago I asked God for patience and forgot that any time you ask God for patience, He will put you somewhere where you NEED patience.

Very nice set of tools! Great saw and outfeed table, I have the same planer and you’ve got a better trailer than mine. Keep scrounging wood and with those tools, you’ll have a shop built in no time.

Great deal on the saw-if that’s a Jet contractors, $100 is a steal. By the way, try not typing with CAPS LOCK ON, it makes reading very difficult.

Gotta love free wood. It definitely is my favorite. Nice save on the Table Saw. I like the outfeed table as well. I have a similar saw to yours. I may have to try that.

Looks like an awesome start to a workshop. Those clutter throwing creatures always show up around here as well, not sure how they keep getting into my basement.
Keep up the great work and let us know about other finds, recycling of waste wood is always popular around here.
A little belated, but welcome to LumberJocks.

Eddie, I saw your comment about banjo picking and just had to check out your shop. Great table saw outfeed table; you’ve got a good shop. Woodworking is like pickin’ a banjo I figure-you just keep trying and working at it and then when you figure it out, you move on to another level. Now, tennis was different for me-somedays I thought I could play, then the next day, I’d look like I’d never played! Congratulation on the retired status-enjoy the woodworking and make some more music!
