Retired seasoned citizen who over the years collected hand-me-downs and other used woodworking equipment to have a small shop. Started it by making my wife a simple bench patterned after one we bought in a thrift shop.
Wanted to make it just as someone would without any special tools or skills, just used white wood from the box stores. Used some nails but mostly pegs to hold it together. After about four years I have become somewhat skilled and have picked up power tools along the way, just bought my first real band saw only a 14" Rigid but will keep me happy.
I now build benches of my own design, still very "Colonial" looking, but added some of my own variations. I sell them on eBay but lately the market is so bad, not much activity.
I now make benches and tables of my own design, mainly oak and cherry, plus I started making wooden colonial weather vanes from patterns I found in an old book.
Am working on a large prototype of a WW I Sopwith-Camel which is stretching my skills.
