Worked all my life
Now retired after 22 years at Boeing
Always had a goal to do woodworking upon retirement
Enjoy camping, electronics (check the roof out) and now back learning from others in particular woodworking skills.
I dont have a workshop as such, just a few tools inside the home garage.
All my work is done in the driveway and on an outside work bench.
All the equipment I have is mobile, meaning it either has a rolling frame attached or I have put wheels on it, so I can roll it outside onto the drive way and around the garage.
Then at the end of the day (or if it rains) everything is packed back up and stored round the car.
