Welcome to the forum Bob.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Default Welcome, Flahdah man

Hi, Robert, and welcome from this 72-year-old whippersnapper.

Soon as you said Florida shop, I thought of Laney Shaughnessy out of Ocala. I know that's the other end of the state, but he is a wonderful young man with a very generous contribution to woodworkers through his online videos.

Go here or just go to YouTube and enter Laney Shaughnessy in the search bar.

A while back he bought a small steel-sided building and erected it on his back yard, with videos of the whole thing. You can watch the new shop come to life as he migrates his equipment and projects to it. One of his projects was to build a router table extension for his table saw.

Hope to hear more from you on the forum!

Welcome to the forum, Robert.

"perfect dovetails"......when you find out, let us all in on the secret.
