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.

-- Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust, and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, you never think you'll be up again, but life goes on.
