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.

welcome…there are quite a few shopsmith owners here! I own a 520…

You should look at shopsmithtom he is a great person who has several “ER’s” and he has many posts about the ones he finds and re-furbishes…

By the way—-I taught highschool for 2 years at Las Plumas HS when I started my career 12 years ago…but got laid off 10 years ago and found a new job in Napa…

Welcome for the tip. Newer woodworker here but paying it forward on the advice of other woodworkers from the woodnet forums. I know as soon as I threw the Timberwolf blade on it was night and day. As you said it sliced like butter. I find myself using the bandsaw more and more now too.

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

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a little over a year ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…
