    Looks great Dave Bet the little guy luvs it!
    And have to say, my speed reading didn't help much on your "tiny" workshop, read that as your shop is 25" x 48" ...be a great table-top shop

    yep, that's a pretty small space to work with machines. but it turned out great, on to the next project.

    I live on long island dave, and I used to go to a lot of estate and tag sales here.

    I was in one home in the Oceanside area, a very small cape, smaller than mine, and off the kitchen, through a fake wall/door, in back of counter, an older gent(deceased 6 months before his wife I was told), had a room approx. 8ft by 8 ft filled with tools.
    there were signs on some of the furniture throughout the house that it was handmade by the owner of the house.
    All I thought about that morning was how did that guy build a dresser in an 8ft by 8ft space, loaded with tools, and how did he manage to get it out of there, along with all the other furniture in the house with signs on it.

    I figured it was a slow, tedious process, but possible.
