I am a 35 year old video game developer in Pittsburgh, Pa. I specialize in graphics and performance programming. I've been really into woodworking for about 5 years. I grew up on a farm and built houses with my dad for family members, so I have always been around power tools, but not until I had my own house did I decide that I should build furniture. Basically I liked the idea of shorter projects (building additions and garages, and houses, and barns, takes time), and I wanted much better furniture for us than we could afford. My wife (Anastasia), son (Harrison, he's new as of 1/7/08), and I live in a fairly small house, so each piece of furniture is custom built for maximum usefulness.
I mostly build projects for family and friends, but occasionally do commission work. Most of the people I know ask about commissioning a piece, but have NO idea of what the work is worth. I teach classes and do demos from time to time at the local Rockler store, and I used to work there part time, which has allowed me to collect a nice set of tools for reasonable $$$.
And here they are, well, some of the big ones anyway...
TS - Powermatic 2000
BS - Jet 18"
Jointer - Jet 8"
Drum Sander - 16-32 Performax
Planer - 13" Dewalt 735
Scroll Saw - Dewalt 20"
DP - 16.5" Delta Laser
DC - Jet DC1100 w/ canister
Air cleaner jet 1000 cfm
And my poor little m-power mini lathe.
I should also include my Domino, which is just fantastic.
