Introduced to woodworking this in summer of '08 and love all of it. I now consider it a hobby. My first projects were building a bedframe and nightstands which I love. Guess it was quite a big project for the first project, but making a box really didn't appeal to me.

Power Tool list:
Delta 10" Unisaw Cabinet Tablesaw
Delta 12" Compound Mitersaw
Delta 1.5 hp 1200CFM Dust Collector
Porter Cable 1.5 hp router
SkilSaw Mag Wormdrive saw
SkilSaw Circular Saw
Makita 6" Orbital Sander
Porter Cable 3x21" Belt Sander
Milwaukee 5" Orbital Sander
Milwaukee 3.5 hp Plunge Router (in table)
Bosch Jigsaw
Hitachi 14.4v drill kit
Milwaukee Driver drill

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.
God Bless
