I've always been doing something with wood but in 1996 I had to retire from a job due to Multiple Sclerosis. After driving my wife and three kids nuts, I needed to get a hobby - and one that I could spend some time with. One thing let to another and now I've got most of the basement. The MS makes me a slow woodworker, not enough good days, but I sure do enjoy it. A series of stupid decisions cost me 2/3 of a finger and I am no longer allowed to have a jointer. That has made me a hand plane nut. My shop includes a Delta 5 hp cabinet saw, Laguna 18" band saw, Delta drill press, Laguna 18/47 lathe, Oneida dust collector, DeWalt scroll saw and a fabulous Roubo style bench. I have a wide assortment of mostly Lie-Nielsen hand panes. Lots of great tool/toys, thanks to my wife!
