New in Hillsborough

Hi Folks,
My name is Chris Paul and I haven't been able to put a car in my garage since I was in my twenties (so a few decades now). Instead, my garage has been packed with woodworking and blacksmithing tools, and once upon a time, telescope making equipment. These days I'm mostly interested in bladesmithing (most of the equipment I use I built myself, including a gas forge, heat treat oven, and 2 x 72 belt grinder). That said, I still enjoy furniture projects like the king size bed frame I built last year (walnut, with live edge headboard) along with matching bedside tables.
I spend too much time watching people create things on youtube, and I struggle with shop organization. Perhaps a member or two on this forum can help me get on the right track?
Cheers!

Thanks gentlemen. Mike, I'm not 100% sure about this yet, but I'm thinking about posting pics of the current state of my shop. It'll likely make you feel way better about yours!

Welcome. There are several members in the Mebane/Hillsborough area.

Prior to Covid we were just starting to organize shop crawls, where a group would visit 4-6 member shops in a geographic area on a Saturday. A great way to get ideas but right now we don't have any planned.
