I'm 55 years old. I love making things out of wood. I'm trying to start a business doing just that. It's a lot of work, but it's coming along.

It’s good to find a forum of woodworkers online. I’ve just recently gotten back into it. I lost most of my good old tools in a divorce about 12 years ago and am now remarried and finally have another house with a garage that’s perfect for a workshop. I build a couple rooms and a bathroom in my basement, which made my attached garage a mess of storage, still is a little crowded, but things are coming along nicely. Finally I have a place to keep my tools where I can find them.
In rebuying all my tools, I realized just how much they’ve changed over the years. They seem pretty cheap now, but not inexpensive. I have my table saws, and miter saws with stands, router and table, and almost all the smaller hand tools, but I’m still up in the air about a planer joiner. I have a hand planer on order from Porter Cable but I need a joiner planer for the shop. I can’t seem to find one that is affordable and reliable. My price point is 300 -500 if anyone has any suggestions. I’d appreciate it.

Welcome Russell. You have found the right place for woodworking. A great group of people willing to help. Looking forward to see your projects and comments. Work safe in the shop and don’t forget to use pushsticks.
