I can't help you with the plans, just offer you a welcome. More times than not I just Google image search something and look at all the pictures and come up with my own plan.

Gerald - welcome to the forum, you'll find it to be a good one. Now, where in Tennessee are you? All my immediate family still lives in West Tennessee.

As for the plans you're looking for, I really can't help you, but second/third the 'net search.

Nancy, Oldwoodworker, Thanks for the warm welcome. I'm located just 20 minutes south of Knoxville, little town they call Maryville.

Yeah, you two, I've been hiding. No, it's just been a busy month with my birthday, Christmas, a death in our family (B-I-L), getting ready for Christmas, retirement, etc., etc., etc.

Yep, I'm officially retired, and if the current status is any indication, it's a good thing I did--I have four jobs sitting here staring at me that need to be finished and shipped by 12/31!!! Laser and lathe work both, so I'm going to be dividing my time between the two shops to get it done.

I did celebrate my retirement with a dinner thrown by my boss--about 25 people and lots of laughs and tears, and the proverbial gold watch (but with diamonds!!!). It's been a rather teary time around my place for the past few days. It still hasn't hit me yet, because I left Thursday, but I haven't been working Fridays since June, so Friday was a "normal" day for me. Of course it's the weekend, and my boss always closes the office between Christmas and New Year's, so I wouldn't have been going back to work until January 2. That's when it will be a reality that I AM RETIRED!!! I won't have to get up at o'dark-thirty to fight rush-hour traffic--I'll be able to sleep in, get up when I want to, and wander to the shop when the mood strikes. Yeah, right!!

Thanks for the congrats--I'm happy about it, and I think hubby is too, even though our income just took a drastic dive.

I know where Maryville is--and I have friends in Knoxville and Oak Ridge. Actually, I have friends all over the state. I grew up in Northwest Tennessee, lived in Memphis and Nashville, and still call Tennessee "home", since my parents and sister are still there.

Well Nancy welcome to the world of happy living and sleeping late. That is the world of retirement. You will enjoy it. Being your own boss and making your own schedule and changing it when u want with no problems. I've been retired now for 10 years and can't remember when I was working :laughing: . I have enjoyed each day knowing that I can do want I want and when I want. I also have many projects going on, as they say:yes: "You have to many Irons in the fire" :yes: Will I do, but u know something one of the irons is always coming out of the fire at the right time and being replaced by another. So its a never ending work load.:thumbsup: So enjoy and take it easy.
