I was a welder till a shoulder injury put me out to pasture 20 years ago.
I have way too many Bosch tools and my Kreg router table arrived today with a Triton router to join my 240v Foreman. Takes me longer to do things and the heavy lifting has to be worked around.
Toyed with the idea of a saw horse 2 x 4 rail workbench that I could move around to free up shed space when needed till I realised I wasn't going to be able to lift the top off. Found something on youtube that might solve that problem.
I know where you are coming from Dale. I am caregiver for my wife's dad and also my wife whom is disabled. It is a fulltime job, but I do find a little time here and there to lose myself in my wood shop. Family comes first, but we also have to take care of ourselves!
Have a Great Day
Hi, My name is Mike and I live in Mid west IL. I have a small one car garage that I use to do woodworking. I like working on home projects, remodeling, just making things for the house and Yard. I made an entertainment center with barn doors and had to make the doors, which was a fun project. That was the first time that I ever used pocket hole joinery. They turned out great. I am now looking to build a good work bench, so I don't have to work off of saw horses anymore.
Walt here, g'morning all. I've been doing a few things around the house for years, almost all of it building or repairing. Time to get into the details of things more along the lines of cabinetry and useful things without the pressure of closing it in and getting it functional. I find the Kreg tools rather handy and functional. Haven't retired yet so limited time along with other chores though goals will keep me focused. Have a wall in the living room that is begging for cabinet lowers and bookshelves above. One at a time just like you eat an elephant, one bite at a time.
Hi everyone. My name is Tom. I have been retired for about 3 1/2 years now. My woodworking skills were good 45 years ago. Since then I got a job, got married, had kids, travelled all over the world, lived in Geneva, Switzerland, watched my kids get married. I have six grandchildren with one on the way. My son built a home next to me. We have some acreage and I decided it was time to build a steel building 40' x 60'. We plan to have areas in it to house our lawn equipment, trailers, campers. An area for family gatherings with kitchen and restroom. A game/social area and a workshop area. We have some equipment and I felt it was time to get back in the saddle again. My son enjoys tinkering with projects and has made a few CNC machines plus work with 3D printers. I am hoping to get much advice and knowledge from this forum.
