I have had a wood working shop for about 7 years. I spend more time playing with machines than i actually spend building but that is starting to change. My shop is way to small for the machines I have but I feel blessed to have it. In fact the work i do is way way to small for some of the machines I have but I love machines and tools. My life long dream is to own a radial arm saw that could cross cut a sheet of plywood but I have no idea why. I am one of those very boring people who likes talking about hardware and tools. I am self employed; actually a bum for hire and do everything from fixing 2 stroke equipment to roofing. occasionally I build a book case or cabinet for some one and am lucky if I get $7 an hour for my trouble. If I didn't have to earn a living I wouldn't care and would probably be building just for the cost of materials. scratch that. I want money. Makes me feel more appreciated. Right now I'm just to slow of a worker to make in with wood working. By the way. I'm also long winded. even when i'm typing.
