I'm new to the website and would like to introduce myself. About 10 or 12 years ago I needed a double sink vanity for my kid's bathroom. A good buddy in construction (with a shop) was kind enough to walked me through, and teach me/coach me through the process of building such a cabinet. It came out pretty good for a rookie's maiden project and I was pretty excited and hooked immediately. As you all know, that was just the beginning of my journey. I started to accumulate tools and machines via Craig's List and the local woodworking shop, and started putting together my own shop in the garage. I did an addition to my house and made all of the cabinets throughout the house and was able to customize everything. In my shop, I started with a Delta Contractor's Saw and it's been fantastic. Last year I was able to realized my ultimate dream of obtaining a Delta Unisaw (with a unifence, but would love to have the Biessemeyer 52" fence). This saw has opened up many new doors, but also has created some new concerns/problems. This is something I'm hoping you guys can help me with. I'm just now starting to realize the value of jigs and sleds and splitters, etc. I currently don't have any of those things, but I'm very interested in getting/making them. I'm going to keep the contractor's saw as a second unit, and I've been able to add a dust collector, belt/disc sander, planer, and was even given a second contractor's saw that I'll trade my brother for a generator. I also have the usual jig saw, various sanders, routers, and cordless drills/drivers. I'm currently on the lookout for a jointer and would love to be able to build a router table or incorporate one into my Unisaw extension table. Anyway, I love doing this stuff and am excited about learning more from you guys. Thanks to those who have already welcomed me, I look forward to interacting with you all.

Best regards,
