That being said it does not mean that I will be doing nothing. I have a friend that has offered me the use of his shop space but he is a machine man and I wish to be a hand tool person. So the real challenge is going to be how do I move my tools and supplies back and forth between to places. I could leave them there with no fear of them being stole but as you all know If you leave it over there you will need it here. And that in lies the problem it is not like he is next door in fact it takes about 25 minutes to drive to his place which again slows me down due to the money issue.
But all is not lost I am working on a small break down bench that I can set up outside on nice days to do material prep. and tool sharpening etc.. I do own a table saw and may do something with it but not sure yet.
So any advice or suggestion would go a long way here. Ho and here are a few pictures of the spoons I carved and the knives I made to do it.

So, what does this have to do with woodworking you ask. Well everything, for one I love working with my hands and keeping me busy is a major plus. The second, is I love working with wood. So put the two together you get a new journey and learnig experience. I have done some woodworking for friends and have craved a few love spoons for family members in the last few years and had the big , "DUHHH why did I not do this before" moment.
So bear with me and follow along as I stumble down this new road of life and feel free to share the wealth of knowledge you all have with me.
