Plywood table

Same pattern I use, made a hundred of them probably. Two sheets of 3/4 yields an 8x4x3 table.

I could work there

This looks like a great space to work, lots of natural light, room to move around and in Atlanta it would still be comfortable in the winter months.

I'm curious ...

What do you use a fire ax for in a woodworking shop?

I Wood Do That

I would be glued to my work everyday. Then I wood go home to my wife Mortice and kiss her and the kids, Dowel, Rod and my little girl Eucalyptus. I Pine for them everyday.

Drill Sergeant

"Did you hear about the blind man who picked up a hammer and saw?"

I was hammered

It's my worst vise.

I needed to drill my way out of this joint and board a plane. But first I tapped my mudder for some scratch. It wasn't easy, she's tough as nails. But I told her I was on the level.
