Before we bought our new house and acreage in 2012, I wasn't remotely into woodworking...in fact, I was pretty solidly wood-incompetent. Our new place had a garden-variety work bench in the garage, and I bought a used radial arm saw because there are always things needed to be built for a rural property. I built a garden gate and a chicken coop (which turned out surprisingly like the drawings) and some other small things, but I didn't do much real woodworking until my dad passed down my grandfather's tools to me.
My grandfather was a general building contractor and finish carpenter back in the 1930s and 40s, and I inherited his 100-year old Disston saws, Yankee screwdrivers, chisels, a brace and a roll of (rusty) bits still in their canvas roll, and other hand tools literally from a bygone era. But because more projects needed to be built and I didn't have the fancy table saws and routers I saw in every magazine and online article, I tried to find "work-arounds" to do things while I saved up for big power tools. Then I discovered Chris Schwarz and Roy Underhill, who empowered me to believe that I already had most of the tools I needed...and I could make many of the ones I lacked for myself.
And the galoot addiction began...
