Hello to all my Brothers in the UK,
I must say, prior to my introduction, that the UK has (arguably) made the finest woodworking tools the world has ever seen! To that end, I have had a friend in the UK scour the tag sales and flea markets on your side of the pond for decades. I have an extensive collection of tools from the UK!
I retired three years ago, and am just getting back into my wood shop. My wife and I moved to a rural farmstead, and I had to refurbish many of the buildings, including a barn that I now use as my shop.
This was my shop prior to restoration:

And, during restoration:

Now, after the restoration, and the addition of a few more structures to fuel my wood and metal working addiction:

So, with all the construction that I had to do, along with working multiple jobs, I have not been able to actually work in my shop for decades! I just recently de-cluttered, and ran my table saw for the first time in 22 years!

Prior to that, I believe I that was a reasonably accomplished woodworker. I hope to post a few projects in the future. I will attach a few pics of my past projects. Most of the shop cabinets were made of recycled lumber obtained from dumpsters.
