I started woodworking back in 1992 when I needed furniture for the house. I made beds, bookcases, entertainment center, large secretaries and smaller decorative items. I am drawn to the simple, country or Shaker styles.

I slowed down the woodworking project about 1999, between career, kids and moves, doing basic DYI stuff. Between 2009 and 2019 I have been doing many more home projects over the past four years (bathroom remodels, sheds, fences, attic and bonus room remodels), and built a good inventory of both power and hand tools.

2016 - 2020 I built a good router table using the Incra set up, made a nice Kreg Pocket Hole and Assemble table and a another assembly table with 3/4-in holes. Very recently upgraded my Jet 2 HP TS with Incra Fence and rail (miss it!) to a very nice 52-in, 3 HP SawStop, along with adding a 14-in Jet bandsaw, and a 6-in jointer with carbide insets. I also inherited a Festool Domino and DC, and so begins the slide down the green tool fascination. Im planning to get the TS 55 Track Saw and a Router, largely bc of the dust collection. But Im stopping there... my sanders, jig saws, drills etc are all fine.

I also installed a large 3 HP Penn State Cyclone DC with several short runs (less than 10 ft) bc Im very concerned about dust collection. I remember being coated with dust, and dust layered on everything in the past, and I don't want that again.

2021 update - planning retirement, just bought land near Harrisonburg Va, looking at huse plans and planning a new basement shop! I will be really thankful in a couple years not to be working out of a two car garage where the wife wants to park her car every night.
