I always felt silly paying someone to do something that I could do just as well with a little practice and the right tools. Rather than paying a repairman $100 to fix it, I'd rather buy $100 worth of tools and do it myself. This is how the addiction started.

I knew I wanted a tablesaw, and so I went scrounging around craigslist to see if I could find one. I ended up finding an older woodworkers entire delta collection: table saw, 6" jointer, 15" planer, bandsaw, miter saw, benchtop belt/disc sander, lathe, and even 1000+ BF of black walnut, oak and cherry. Turns out he needed some expensive surgery, and the toys had to go. I couldn't resist.

I'm only 30, but I learned a long time ago that I'm NEVER the first person to have had "this problem." While I lack experience, my willingness to read about all YOUR mistakes and solutions puts me back in the game.

I'm looking forward to posting some more of my projects on here!
