Here are two shots of some of my favorite things. This is my "workshop" (corner of garage). A third shot (I know--it violates the rules so flog me with a wet noodle) shows a couple projects conpleted recently.

The first shot shows my table saw and a roll-around wood cart I built.



The second shot shows my drill press, bandsaw, toolbox (behind bandsaw) and another wood storage rack (behind drill press)



The third shot shows two flower planters I built using the above tools along with several portable power tools not shown.

Nice hobby you have there Cal. We'll forgive the third picture rule this time since the labor of your work is so ( I guess it is really up to Selvin though:blah

Cal, looks like an even more expensive hobby than photography -- DOE (depending on equipment). My wife would love one of those planters.

Love the tools and understand working in the corner of the garage. I prefer metal to work with myself. But the toys, er I mean tools, seem to be even more expensive.

Wish I could make stuff like that Cal, I'm lucky to drive a nail straight. Nice shots and love those wagons!

Boy, what I wouldn't give for a shop area too. Nice work on the planters.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments. I appreciate it.

Walter, I have paid more for a lens than I paid for these three tools combined. The average price of these tools is about $125 each. They are low end but good quality if that makes sense!

Walter, if you are serious about one of the planter wagons, PM me and we might work something out.
