Hello everyone,
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.

Thank you to all for the good wishes, I’m sure I’ll learn a lot and with a little luck, maybe I’ll have some good ideas or suggestions. I posted my first project, a drill press table: go check it out!
