I'm 47 and have enjoyed WW since I was about 12. I haven't had the facility to have my shop for the past 11 years — all my tools have been in storage.

At the urging of an Uncle, I purchased a Shopsmith in 1984, investing $2500 for a system. It immediately proved to be a poor choice, but limited by a small area in a shared basement, it did allow me to "play" with my hobby.

I have always wanted a dedicated shop with quality machinery to build furniture, cabinets and such. I have a 12x20 brick utility building detached from my home that I am converting to that shop.

Now I have the pleasure (or pain) of purchasing machinery that will satisfy my habit.

Welcome to the forum.

Sounds like your shop is close to the same size as mine and it should work out nicely for you if layed out properly.

Post any questions you have and you will get almost immediate response from the friendly members here.

BTW.... share some progress pictures of that new shop.... we love pictures.
