I have been interested in woodworking for about 20 years, playing at it for about 12 and since I got a dedicated shop in 2011 have gotten very serious. Its a small shop, but its a dedicated space which for me is the most important thing. Been acquiring tools like a madman for the last 2 years and of course I love Lee-Valley/Veristas and Lie-Nielsen tools like nearly everyone else (its hard not to). I'm a hybrid woodworker, but I prefer handwork for the reduced dust, noise and risk. I say I am saving up for a Sawstop, but I can't seem to stop spending every spare dime on other tools. My interests tend toward mostly casework and fine furniture, but I find myself getting more attracted to the idea of carving, inlay, veneering, and marketry probably because these all require specialty tools that I can buy. Woodworking is my main passion and hardly an hour goes by that I don't think about it. I get witdrawals if I don't go into my shop for at least a little while each day. I recently got to the point where my knowldge, skills, and tools have begun to gel so that I can produce nice joinery-what a great feeling! I'm here because I think people in my life are getting tired of me talking about woodworking and I just can't stop. :-)
