nice workspace man

Looking at your photos I am starting to have shop envy. Is there a story behind having a shop in an apartment? Did you have to downsize? Most of your power tools I would not expect an apartment dweller to have. However, before I was married I had a bandsaw and drill press in my apartment.

Additional details on the mitre saw, table saw and drill press dust collection methods would be appreciated. Looks great and very functional. Super job!

I live in Denver and housing prices are not very friendly. Hopefully in the near future all these tools will have a better home.

Looks great!!
