Wish we had something like that around here at $55 annual fee is very nice. Our local maker space is $100 a month.

Very cool. I wished more people were like that.

So many hold on to everything they own with no one in the picture to receive it or put it in storage when put in situations similar to his. No doubt he would say he came out way ahead on the deal. He gets a lot of enjoyment being there, helping out passing along some knowledge, and getting to still use the equipment.

Incredible story, I’ll have to keep that in mind, as I do not have any children to pass on the collection. What a great guy and family.

Thx for sharing this wonderful story.

Brilliant Joe and the best part of the story is the respect for Dave’s knowledge & know-how being passed on to younger folk who are gaining a passion for working with wood creating beautiful items of joy…love it!!

PS – I’ve copied the link and posted it in the Aussie Woodwork Forum as an encouragement…Thank you again!
