John, by all means don’t sell yourself short. We all have to start someplace. It sounds like you have managed to acquire a pretty decent collection of hand tools. While I am primarily a power tool woodworker I have come to appreciate the ability of those woodworkers who follow traditional routes and put a focus on using hand tools.

By the way take a look at Marco's and Dilo's projects. They are built using only hand tools. And Dilo has a shop that is basically a 42 sq ft closet.

But keep an eye out for bargains and build your shop and equipment as time and budget allow.

John, you have to crawl before you can walk. It took me almost 25 years to get my first big power tool. Hang in there.

John, congratulations on starting young. You have a whole life of woodworking ahead of you and it is something that I don’t think that you will ever regret doing. You have a very good start with your shop. My biggest advice for you would be for you not to ever neglect the hand tools. You are starting young enough to be able to acquire both. You should acquire a good solid set of hand tools as soon as possible and learn how to care for them and use them. No matter what you make or how many power tools that you have your hand tools skills will never let you down and will always serve you well.
