This is a nice looking shop that you have put together. It look like you keep it pretty well organized and the pegboard is a good tool to help organize/store your hand tools. You also have managed to put together a nice collection of tools as well.

Thanks for letting us take a look at your shop. It was fun to take a tour of it.

Looks like you are off and running. Remember that most the expensive antiques out there were made by hand. I wish I had taken the time when I had more time when I was younger and learned to work wood properly by hand. Now I work 70+ hours a week, have a family, and do woodworking when I can squeeze it in between now and then.

Thanks! I’m in the decision stages in building my workshop / buying tools and it gets overwhelming at times b/c I don’t know what to “buy next” and “what way is best for my situation” with my sq. footage i have. My last purchase was the Ridgid 6” Jointer I got off of Criagslist for a great deal, how do you like your Ridgid Planer? I want to get that next. I know I need a router/table but I really want to wait till I get the INCRA TS-LS combo w/ router extension, but in the meantime I’ve considered buying the Dewalt DW618 combo and us it now. Any advice to my future purchases would be awesome! thanks again!
