Default Kid in a sweet shop!

Today I have been working in my friends workshop He had asked me to make him some small lockers for a client of his. He provided all of the materials and the workshop for me paying me for my time. Have to admit I was like a kid in a sweet shop using his SCM panel saw, SCM 24" planer and was well impressed with his Elu biscuit jointer. (I must upgrade mine.) It did take a little longer building the units due to not knowing his shop but I got on well and he has asked me if I am interested in doing more for him. I will be back there on Friday as he hadn't got the panels for the doors yet. Got to admit it was so nice working in a shop that was large and light with dust extraction to everything. One day, one day.

Sounds great! But, it would be too far for me to drive.
