Hello. I am returning to woodworking after a layoff of 45 years. I acquired two Shopsmiths, and have been making and turning all sorts of items, gavels, pens, vaces, bowls, and various things that fit my fancy. I really enjoy working with wood and spend hours building things. I have made furniture in the past and have made several step stools for the grandkids, as well as small tables for my house. I do all of this from my electric wheelchair, so all of my workshop is set up for easy accessiblility for my chair. I even turn from my chair. Great fun.
