Location: Austin, Texas

I originally from south texas but moved to central texas right after high school to attend college at Texas A&M. Graduated in 2000 with a degree in Electrical Engineering and since then have lived in Austin, Tx. Wood has always been part of my life. My grandfather was a woodworker and all of my uncles are either house builders or cabinet makers. So woodworking is a hobby that naturally came to me. I really got into woodworking and furniture building once I graduated from college since I know had a job and could afford to buy my own woodworking tools. I started by buying used tools off Craigslist and over the years I have slowly sold some of these tools and upgraded to better ones. My shop is my 2 car garage which started as a true car garage but one that no longer does since my wood hobby has completely taken over (wife has accepted this change =) ). Its size is small I think (18'x20') but so far I been able to arrange and setup all my tools in a way that still allows me to move around easily (will soon post some pictures of it). My current list of tools include:

sawstop 3hp industrial table saw,
grizzly g0513x2 17" bandsaw,
grizzly g0409 8" jointer,
grizzly g0453 15" planer,
General 75-075 floormodel mortiser,
Grizzly dust collector,
10" ridgid miter saw,
3.25 hp porter cable router mounted on a fixed router table,
Two 2.25 bosch routers and one 1.75 milwaukee router,
several cordless drills,
delta drill press,
circular saw,
porter cable biscuit jointer,
festool domino,
Lie Nielsen No. 8 and No. 4 1/2 handplane,
Lie Nielsen block plane,
WoodRiver V3 No. 6 handplane,
Veritas large shoulder and router plane,
Narex classic chisels set,
earlex 5500 hvlp system,
and other shop and tool accessories.

Anyways this is my brief info and some of my tools that I currently have. Will soon post pics of my 2-car garage shop.
