As a kid and teenager, I spent many weekends in my dad's home shop working wood. He enjoyed making custom clocks and taught me a lot of basics of working wood.

After college, I spent 17 years working at Procter and Gamble in the US and even a couple years in Japan. After that, I spent several years as a corporate Marketing executive in big retailers.

I eventually hit a point in that corporate life where I realized I was making a good living but I wasn't making a good life. So, my wife and I dropped out of that rat race and moved to the North Carolina mountains. I converted an old barn into a great workshop. Built a lot of great projects there. Also, really had fun chasing down old lumber from the local farmers and people in the mountains. Lots of great barn finds.

Eventually, we chose to leave that paradise to be near family. In June 2015 we moved into a home in Acworth, GA (An Atlanta suburb). I now am working on fitting my workshop into a dedicated one car garage. Quite a downsizing challenge.

My website is: www.justinswoodshop.com

Really looking forward to learning from everyone on LJ. So many great ideas on here. Thanks in advance for your support.

Hello all,

I’m trying to help my step father sell his woodworking equipment. He has a medical condition and is no longer able to work in his shop. He lives in Keller, Tx (Dallas/Ft Worth area). He has a Craftsman 3hp Radial Arm Saw, Drum Sander, Drill Press, Kreg router table on a cabinet, 12” planer. Anyone have an interest in buying these tools at good prices? Also has a ton of wood clamps and other small tools.
