Inside of shop with Fred in certer

Building is in his blood

Fred Collins got his introduction to woodworking as a youngster, working for his homebuilder father. Add that to a 30-year career as an industrial arts teacher and there isn't much that Fred doesn't know about the tools of his trade. After retiring in 2000, Fred decided to put that knowledge to work and build his own shop next to his home.

My shop was built by me and is a 12x16 unit it isn't fancy but it works, I annot afford anything bigger or fancier. I am retired and on a fixed income. It gets the job done. Jerry

I have a good selection of tools and machines. Far too many for my poky little shop, but I didn't buy them all at once. It's taken me years. Now the shop is in the middle of a make-over. It woin't be any bigger, but it might have a better arrangement of the machines etc. I wouldn't say I am poor, but I ain't rich either!
