Probably not much different than you all, married my high school sweetheart 41+ years ago, raised two children, and have one grandchild (~5 yrs.). Bought my first power tool (B&D reciprocating saw) with S&H Greenstamps in 1970 to cut up some pine boards for kitchen shelves. I've rendered perfectly good lumber into sawdust ever since. Over the past 40+ years I've built case goods for the home, furniture for the patio, baby furniture, and currently looking into utilizing scraps to build band saw boxes. My favorite tool is an old Shop Smith (Model 10-ER built in 1958) that I purchased from an old family friend about 30 years back and still gives good service. My "shop" is a one-car garage so all my stationary tools are on casters so that I can move outside when the weather permits.
I guess that is enough for now. I'll update with project pictures at a later date, and I am looking forward to meeting with many of you in the very near future.
P.S. I still use the B&D reciprocating saw.

My client like the last conversion so much, they want to do another, this time an old oak icebox but with structural issues that need to be addressed first. It seemed like an interesting project, so I took it on with a caveat; if I could f...
Started up again after returning from the Reno Air Races by jointing the edges of some 3/4” Beech boards and dowel/gluing them up into wider boards for the cocktail box and vertical divider. The cocktail box front and floor were joined using a 1/...
Well, the good news first; the client wishes to proceed with the conversion! The bad news is the client wishes to proceed with the conversion. I can no longer think about it, now I have to do it. The first order of business was to remove the ...
