Location: Eastern Washington, the country
When in Eastern Washington and you get to a point where it is about an hour to civilization, whether you go north, northeast, east, southeast, southwest, or west, you're probably near my front door step.
My inclination to be a bit of a tool snob is kept in check by a visit to my farming friends, who own tools the price of which (e.g., a combine) would buy all the tools in my shop several times over.
I started sawdust making around 74. People started buying some of the things I made and my hobby, eventually, became a business. In time, I gave up my regular job (I told people the pay and benefits were too good and the job was too secure, so I had to leave) and went into woodworking and carpentry full time.
I could be I moved into woodwork and such full time as an excuse to buy toys, uh, tools and equipment. Regardless, having a well equipped shop allows me to tackle most anything I please. However, I confess to making it a point to own very few concrete or roof working tools.
In the years since I've dabbled in woodwork, I've produced picture frames, art pedestals, kitchen and other cabinets, bookshelves, racks and the usual assortment of things people like us do.
Some of my projects incorporate glass etch, others granite. Obviously, coat racks might use iron hooks and nearly everything I make relies on some sort of fastener.
