Location: Danville, IL

I started woodworking in 2004 by purchasing my first tablesaw. In fact until then I had never operated a table saw before. I was a little scare at first.

My workshop is part of our 3 car garage. In the summer time when the cars are parked outside, I can claim the entire garage as my workshop. However, in the winter time, my wife's car reclaims the territory. Some of power tools that I have today include a Craftsman contractor tablesaw, a 14" Grizzly bandsaw, a 12 1/2" DeWalt planer, a Makita compound miter saw, a Freud router, a Delta tabletop drill and dust collection system, and an Earlex HVLP sprayer. You see I am not brand loyal!

In 2009 I added a 6" Grizzly jointer w spiralhead cutter, a Ridgid oscillating sander and upgraded my tablesaw fence to a Delta T2 30" fence.

My date job is a pharmacist and my other hobbies are water gardening and marine/reef and freshwater aquariums.
