I am new to woodworking as of January 2010. Not knowing if my urge to give woodworking a try would be a whim or a life long passion, I opted to start out with a single multi-purpose machine to cut my teeth on. In 2009, I purchased and fully restored a 1955 ShopSmith Mark 5. You can see the before and after pics in my projects section. I enjoyed the restoration process so much that I purchased another ShopSmith, this time an older ER10 unit. Again, my projects section shows the fruits of my labor. Both restorations took me through 2009 to complete and 2010 brought the first sawdust I've seen since high school. I'm looking forward to bringing my woodworking skills up to a level where I can tackle about any project.
