As usual, I am doing things in the wrong order. Here is the info I posted in an earlier thread:
I grew up in SC, got my Electrical Engineering degree from USC, married for 30 yrs, 2 kids (grown). Moved to Atlanta for 8 years, and am grateful to be back in SC now. I have enjoyed working with wood for many years, but never had a shop. Mainly have worked with a few hand tools and a circular saw on basic projects. Recently purchased a lathe and started turning wood. Decided to buy some land, build the shop first, then the house - so we are renting a double wide during the construction activities. Now I have a lifetime of projects to do with the land clearing/maintenance, shop and home building, and perhaps some farming as well. Still working my full time job as a project manager hoping retirement is still a possibility at some point. I play bagpipes, like photography, am a HAM (AB4MG), and enjoy singing Barbershop. Most of the hobbies are on hold for now until the shop is finished.
I will start a thread on my shop build which started in Jan-09 when the land (50+ wooded acres) was purchased. Getting ready to pour a footer for a retaining wall, then put up a pole building with concrete floor.
