I, like so many here on Lumber Jocks, started woodworking at a young age with my father. Although he was never formally trained in woodworking, he was still a craftsman in my eyes. When my son was was young (he's 40 now!), I encouraged him to help me in my woodworking projects. About 10 years ago I lost interest in the hobby and my tools started gathering dust. After having some medical problems. I thought I would not be woodworking again, so I started selling off my tools. I sold 2 table saws, a drill press, bandsaw and other things. Last year, while recuperating from major surgery, I started looking at woodworking videos on YouTube and I must say that brought life back into my woodworking desires.
The one big problem was that I had no more tools! Although I did keep my my mini lathe I had to purchase all new tools. Being on retirement. I couldn't afford tools that I wanted but I still tried to get the best bang for my buck. Hopefully I'll be able to post some of my projects here on Lumber Jocks.
