Retired a few years ago. Love to create something new. I like to give something my best shot and then move on. Doing the same idea over and over I find boring.

My shop has been an evolving project that I enjoy improving on. I have upgraded most of the tools and added a few new ones to play with since retiring. I have been working on slowing down to do a better job on some of the things have been trying.

You'll see my shop upgrades and my grand kids in a lot of my projects because they please me the most........................

Thanks for the comment. If you find any plans for storage cabinets that work for you let me know. At some point in time we will be moving from western Massachusetts to northern California and what I have in mind would be stackable cabinet modules that can be turned sideways in the shop and then up ended and used as shipping containers.

Before I got bit by the wood bug, I used to build ” Hot Rods ” and show them for something to do after moving here to the mountains some years ago. Gets real easy collecting specialized tools to do this, and I don’t know if I’m done yet. Can’t have too many tools, can you ?

Mike,
I am looking for some child sized seriously effective hearing protection for my 3 year old grandson. I actually haven’t looked much yet, but thought I would put the question out to someone who has kids in the shop.
