I didn't know you were such the woodworker Paul. Same here. I have a three car garage with one bay dedicated to storing all of the big tools.

My most complex project was a rocking chair - from scratch. Not even plans for it (couldn't find any). I worked from 6 photos of a chair I liked and a couple crude drawings and measurements I made using a grade school protractor (only device I could lay a hand on while traveling). Took me 5 months working weekends and after work. Best bonus was I got to buy a $700 lathe with the wife's blessings .

I love Norm too.
