Now that’s what I would call a “starter” shop!

Thanx Gary!
It’s not all quite that bad.
I have the usual assortment of drills, hammers, screwdrivers, measuring devices etc. that Joe Homeowner accumulates over time.
Let’s just say I’m one baby step out of the starting gate.

Most people would be quite surprised just how much can be made just with them tools.

Hi Rick,

I am just getting around to some of the posts I have missed. Your shop picture made my day. Gary’s signature says it best. My father was a third generation carpenter and this is all he ever used to cut trim. I still have a couple of his miter boxes but never learned to use them which is a reflection on my handskills. I have come to believe that if you develop your hand skills firsts then the switch to power tools is much easier. But the reverse is much harder.

You have a nice start on your shop. You are learning a time honored and valuable skill.

Thanks for sharing.
