Location: Hill City, Kansas -- USA

Hey there. I am in the process of retiring and have worked with wood most of my life, one way or the other. A couple of years ago I had a small wood shop built. Have been setting it up with tools, power and hand, and have started to get a little more serious. My other hobbies are hunting and fishing. Hopefully the shop will keep me out of my wife's hair when I do retire.

RETIRED, as of 3:00 pm this afternoon, 2/28/18. Looking to spend more time fishing, hunting and in the shop.

-- MEL, Kansas

Congrats on your retirement Mel.
I retired at the end of December 2000 and loving every minute of it. Woodworking keeps me going!

I just took a look at all your project and for some strange reason I never got a notice email to any of your posts and the “watch” button is on. Anyway I’ll say it here I love the vise idea and the table saw sled is nice! Also I like those crazy cutting board makes me think I’ve been drinking! LOL!
