Ok… I think I am begining to understand the formula, now….
In order to create a masterpiece, one must do so in a catheral…
No wonder you guys do/create such fantastic looking work…
No wonder my work looks like a first year shop class thing.
I have an adjustable work bench, Dremel, saber saw and orbital sander… located under a shade tree or the patio if the grass is wet.
Geeeez…. “I’m not worthy”.
One day… however… one day…

The shop is a cottage that’s on the same property as my house. It’s historic and can’t be taken down. It was built around 1700, according to local hysterians, errr, historians. Dbhost, the vises were being thrown away by a local school that flooded. Since the pics were taken, they also threw away a 6” jointer and a 14” bandsaw. (They were told to replace them by the insurance company!!) More pics of those:

Other parts of the shop were free also, like the lathe and the kitchen cabinets. Just happen to be around when someone says, “Hey, can you help me move this junk out to the curb??”

Jack, this is a great looking shop. I think any of us would love to have shop floors like yours. I certainly would enjoy working in there. Thanks for the tour. I enjoyed taking a look at your shop.
