Just thought I would drop by this area of the site to introduce myself. My name is Chris Adkins and I live with my wife and daughter in Atlanta GA. We are originally from the mountains of western North Carolina but I have live all over. I spent 6 years in the Army (4 of them in Texas) and afterwards have built construction projects all over the southeast.

I grew up woodworking, as my father and grandfather were both woodworkers and builders. I still visit North Carolina about once a month and work in our family shop up there. It is a 100' by 40' shop with most anything you can think of. But I also enjoy working out of my garage shop at my home in Atlanta. With space restrictions I have adapted and really learned to enjoy working with handtools.

Anyway just found this site a while back and have enjoyed reading some of the great article on here.

Welcome Chris glad you decided to join us! Hey listen, next time you visit the family shop in NC bring along your camera. I'd love to see the inside of a shop that big.

Thanks for the welcomes. I have a few pictures that I will post. I have been thinking of writing an article for my site some time comparing the shop up in NC to the one in my garage in Atlanta... but just haven't started it yet. Here are a few pictures that I have and I will take some more next time I am up there.

Our planer 24" Powermatic

We have one heck of a wood storage area... looks much junkier than it really is though. Steel I beams to make the different levels and that ceiling is 16' so a lot of storage.

6" Jointer

View of table saw and boat, not the best picture but you can see a little.

Thanks for the comments!
