Brand new noobie to woodworking. Been wanting to get into this for years. First project was my bench last week. Came out OK but obviously there's miles to go before . . . . . . . anyway.

My initial shop is made up of mostly used tools I've gotten good deals on through Craig's list.

A Delta table saw, Delta 10" bandsaw, Dewalt compound miter saw, 12" Craftsman floor drill press, new Rigid router model R2900 with fixed and plunge base, Ryobi intermediate router table (till I build one), and a Hitachi scroll saw. This is all presently being set up in a 13' x 21' single car garage with a propane hot water heater in the corner. Small but will certainly meet my needs for a while. I'm pretty stoked about it.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
