I'm 57 years old. No longer work. My dream to become a woodworker started when I was in high school. I took a shop class and fell for the wood. Married 4 children 7 grand kids. waiting for more. I was working in the basement for many years and in 1991 got my chance to build a workshop. Now in 2008 I will be moving on as we sold our property. I will be back in the basement again. WOW.

Oct, 2008 move has been made and I ended up in what was a 1 and 1/2 garage. Still working on getting the shop workable.

Hi everyone sorry I have not been attive. I have been getting our new house ready to move into and the old on packed up for the move. It is this Saturday. I worked building a 40 bottle wine cabinet until the 3rd of the month. I just started to pack the shop a couple of days ago. I can’t work on it tomarrow or Friday morning. it is now almost 11pm and i just can’t keep going. I guess the movers, (my kids and a couple of nephews), will need to help on Saturday morning before we load. Some of the stuff like the lumber and cut offs can wait until a diffrent day. The closing on the house is a couple of weeks away. Hope to be back up and making sawdust in a couple of week or so.
See all soon.
Dick
