Attorney by day, fun seeker by night. Woodworker by...well, just getting started.

I have been a serious home theater enthusiast for years. I have zero construction or woodworking experience, but the construction of my home theater (completed in 2012) got me interested in both. I started collecting the basic tools a few years ago and am excited to get into this hobby! Since I have no experience, I really wanted to purchase a SawStop for the safety features. The price tag delayed my entry into woodworking a little while, but I saved my pennies and am now the proud owner of a shiny SawStop. I also added an Oneida Air Dust Gorilla at the same time.

Since then I have been continuing to add tools...miter saw, planer, and compressor by Makita, Bosch router and sanders, and a Grizzly jointer. I'm currently researching drill presses and band saws...those are my next two purchases.
