I am fairly new to woodworking. There has been a Shopsmith in my garage, a gift from an old friend, for several years. It sat mostly unused for five years. Then my wife bought me a router for Christmas 2010. I really like building boxes.
I have about half a two car garage to work in. The driveway helps extend my workplace. My neighbors often stop by to see what I am working on and offer advice, comments and commentary.
I don't normally build from plans as I like to design my works. I recently built cabinet doors for the kitchen, it was quite an undertaking, for me. They came out pretty nice and I learned plenty from them.
I don't entertain ever making this a vocation, it is just a little something to keep me off the liquor.
