Location: So Cal

I am a hobby woodworker. Tools I own are:
Table Saw
12" band saw
Radial (floor) Drill Press
Plunge, fixed, and trim routers + table
Worksharp 3000 tool sharpener
Earlex HV5000 turbine sprayer
1" benchtop belt sander

hand tools...
#4, #5, #65 1/2, and #110 planes
dovetail saw, tenon saw, rip saw
assorted chisels, etc.

So far, I tend to build my own designs based on the families' current needs and our preferred look. Arts and Crafts is my favorite style, but I appreciate many other styles as well. I don't work with plans and prefer to only have a general design/plan in mind (simple drawing), but like to remain somewhat flexible with design (and fit pieces) as I work.

I aspire to someday add a power jointer, power planer, #5 1/2 and #7 planes and a shoulder plane, and a small lathe. Of course I could list A LOT more that I want, but those are first on the list.
