Mark Mandell - Gone Round In New Jersey
My kids have already put dibs on the tools they will take; son gets the flat work stuff, daughter the turning tools.

It's been a dream to get out of the basement, but that's become impractical unless we were to move and find a place with an outbuilding that is shop-ready already on-site. I've put so much into this house, however, I'm pretty resistant to such a move.

I do have a number of pieces in my head that I will build. When/if flatwork gets to be too much of a pain, I'll probable retreat to the lathe for wood and get out my old sketchbook of ideas for sculpture and jewelry. Those will only need a wall in a garage to play with as I dodder on into senility.
