While making a living for my wonderful wife and two great kids, I always had this dream of doing woodworking. My trade was in telephony. I spent 33 years doing everything from planting line poles to programing switching computers. At the age of 57 I retired and moved from Palm Springs, California to New Bloomfield, Missouri. We bought a 15 acre farm with a 30’ x 30’ horse barn. I gutted the barn and started a shop.
Through the benefit of an inheritance I started purchasing tools. Craftsman cabinet saw, drill press, bandsaw, router and table, planer, and bench joiner. I had never used any of these tools until I purchased them. So I subscribed to a couple of woodworking magazines and got started.
