Thanks Steve. Actually I do commercial and residential remodeling, but I do custom wood work when that is slow.
Wish I could stay in the shop most of the time but it doesn't make enough to support the bills yet. One day maybe.
My shop is just a little 24 X 24 - its small, but for what I do it works out just fine for me. I know a lot of you folks have finished cabinets, but I want this to be just a shop and not an extension of my house, anyhow that is my reason for no cabinets and I am sticking too it. LOL.
Thanks guys - yes I do like Ridgid tools, LOL - and yes I used the credit card at Home Depot - most of the tools were purchased 6 years ago and have been sitting in boxes in my garage until last year when I retired and built my shop. I have 5 vacuums in the shop - I think - maybe six, projects - well not to many or any certain projects. I am still trying to get everything done in the shop. Never having experience at woodworking - but lots of experience at drafting and selling wood products (assistance manager of a lumber yard - then retired as a police officer of 21 years) I knew I liked wood, but never worked with it so - here I am dealing in small projects - buffet - setting bench - lots of stuff for the grand kids and quilting rack, I do wood burning, ect. - but the shop gets locked up during the summer - and I only work there during the cold winter days. (Summer is for yard work - gardening - fishing - metal detecting - biking - hiking - ect., all things that are out doors.)
Also I would like to commend all of you on your shops - even the ones with lots of shavings on the floor...:thumbsup:
