Location: Oak Leaf, Texas

I am a 60 Year old native Texan with a need to create. My Wife of 39 Years and I have 1 Son, 33, 1 Daughter 37 and 1 Grandson, 15. I work in a Large Cabinet Mfg. Plant in Duncanville, Texas. I don't build Cabinets at work and very seldom see a finished Cabinet, but I enjoy learning new techniques. I have been a wanna-be woodworker since I was a Teen. I took a woodworking class my Freshman year of High School and have been hooked ever since. I still have a Stanley pad sander that I picked up at a Garage sale in Temple Texas, in 1967. I think I paid about 3 dollars for it. I never use it but would't take for it. I work out of a 2 car garage and can hardly walk in it. I just have to do the best that I can. My Main Tools are, Rigid 10" Table Saw, Rigid 6" Joiner, Old Ryobi 10" Planer, 12 1/2" Delta Planer, Shop built Router Table with a Rigid Plunge/Fixed Router, Multiple corded and cordless hand tools, a 1974 era Drill Press, Ryobi Miter Saw and many more tools too numerous to list. I do my own welding, Plumbing, Electrical, Mechanic, Construction Painting and yardwork. I never could afford to hire those trades so I learned to do things for myself. I guess Plumbing is my least favorite
