Location: Pickerington, Ohio

With 4 daughters, I began making little things here & there to save a little money: beds, doll cases, ect. I started with a small portable table saw I used in the parking lot of our apartment. I've graduated a bit, I think. Now with 9 grandkids and one on the way, I'm making things for my kids to save money. We now have a home with a 2-car garage. No grease stains on the floor, typically sawdust. I'm not sure I can remember the last time a car was in there! My wife completely understands, well, that's my story, at least she gave up complaining about it years ago. After being married to me for 25 years, she's probably just given up!

-- Sawdust looks better in the garage than cars, explain that to your wife!
