I'm 31 and some what a new comer to wood working. I've worked construction with my uncles from ages 12-25. I don't really know anyone that is in to wood working so I learn by reading and watching the wood whisperer. My shop is a 2 1/2 car garage that consists of a 80's 3HP craftsman contractors saw, 12" double bevel compound sliding miter saw, power drill, mouse sander, and a powermatic 50 jointer that's a work in progress.
So far my projects have been building a tea room for my girlfriend which involved painting, building some custom shelves and a couple of tables. I also built a toy wrestle long ring for her son. I restored my contractors saw, which involved a lot of rust removal, polishing, cleaning and alignment. At the moment I'm working on getting my powermatic 50 jointer up and running. It could use a total resto but until its warm enough to paint I'll have to settle for just cleaning and makin it operational.
