Newer to woodworking (started in 2014). Didn't take it in high school or college but now I'm hooked. There is something to be said about skills that involve using your hands. I almost thought these were lost arts but this community shows that is very much still apparent. I use both power tools and hand tools but I haven't perfected the hand tools quite as much just yet.

I served 13 years in the armed forces (US Air Force) at Barksdale, Camp Beauregard and my last 5 at Fort Indian Gap. I currently work for an Internet Provider in a Technical Support Supervisor Role.

My shop is the basement of our house and consists of tools I've picked up mostly through Craigslist or box stores (Home Depot / Lowes) which include:

1. Porter Cable Table Saw : TS222
2. Porter Cable 12 Sp Drill Press: PCB660DP
3. Craftsman Band Saw: 113.243440
4. Dewalt Thickness Planer: DW734
5. Craftsman 6" jointer: 113
6. Skil 2 1/4 Combo Router: 1830
7. Vintage Dewalt Radial 9" Arm Saw: MBF (Favorite tool in my wood arsenal).
8. Central Machinery Mortising Machine which is often more hassle than it's worth.
9. Drill powered Lathe powered by Treadmill motor.

These are the main components of my power tools not including drills, circular saws, air compressor, belt sanders. I have 3 planes, plenty of clamps and chisels.

Have any questions just ask. :)
