Location: Florida Panhandle

I am a lifetime woodworking dabbler, dating back to my middle school years in the 1960's. A 42 year career in law enforcement and the Air Force got in the way of getting a proper shop established. When I retired from the PD 20 years ago I thought I would finally get the shop established but 9/11 changed everything when I was called back to active duty. For the past 6 years I have been operating a private investigation and firearms training business. and just recently I determined that I would finally set up shop and am moving in that direction. I am converting a horse barn (that I built almost 20 years ago) into my dream workshop. Right now working on getting it tight to the weather. The electrician comes the first week of March to install the service panel and I intend to order the machines in April. I will post photos of progress as time passes.
