It was all started 8 weeks ago as a way of spending more time with my sons & a desire to build a common hobby before they reach the age of rebellion. So we 3 set off on this foray into woodworking with a 20 year old duct taped circular saw, a 20+ year old jigsaw, a new (under powered) table router, & about 100 projects & about a million ideas of what we would like to do first.
The first project of course was a work table/bench. That was followed by two cutting boards. These three projects were followed by the knowledge that we were under tooled for the level of projects we would like to do. So one day while looking for a table saw on Craigslist I cam across something called a Shopsmith. I was intrigued and after some very in depth research I made a purchase of a used Shopsmith Mark V. Although the machine is almost 30 years old it looks showroom new. So now we are all giddy with anticipation as we are picking up the machine this Friday afternoon.
I can’t wait to get started! I look forward to sharing my projects and lack of skill & education with all of you. I am sure the fine folks on this board will have much to share.
