My wife and I live in the country midway between the two small towns we grew up in. The quiet environment offers us the privacy we relish, and allows us to meet our worlds on our terms. My shop isn't large but it is equipped with everything from 18th & 19th century hand tools, (some from my great grandfather) to the most modern power tools, including a CNC router with 48" x 54" capabilities. I built the shop (my third) the way I wanted, mostly by my own hand. The things that I left to others were those that required a ladder.
