It's been several years, but I really liked the community here. Real life seemed to get in the way of my "shop" time. Lets see, I've moved to a new place, changed jobs, remodeled the "new" house, and had 5 new grandchildren born... it's been hectic for a bit. Anyway, I went from a shop that was a two car garage shared with 2 vehicles to my own metal building with concrete floor and power that's 35x55. In the process of partitioning it off to 30x35... but won't have to share that with anything else when it's done, so a fully dedicated 1,000 sq ft shop is in the future. Now that spring is here, of course I haven't been working on the shop itself, as I have projects I wanted to complete....but I need to get this finished so I can work year round instead of just in the "good weather" months. Have a few things to post that I've done, just wanted to say hi again, and now that i have some free time i didn't have before, I plan on being a bit more active here than once every few years lol.

One of the first projects I did when we moved to the new place with the shop was this worktable..... been extremely handy for everything.

Welcome back! I'm envious of your 1000 sf of shop space. :thumb: Looking forward to seeing some projects in the future.

And as an aside, don't let lack of woodworking keep you from hanging out here. Quite a few of us aren't getting as much shop time as we used to.

"Real life" can certainly interfere with shop time....in my case it seems to get worse as I grow older. But I like that table set up, and will have to keep that in mind for an upcoming need I have.

Just think of all the things you could get done if you didn't have so much to do :D

Sounds like you're getting into a nice new shop setup anyway, that ought to keep you out of trouble for a while.

Welcome back and like others, I envy your 1000 sq ft....I would be happy with half that... I'm in a 12x24 and jammed in at that.... I have to go outside to change my mind... it is better than the 9 x 10 shed I used in Houston.
