I just returned to woodworking after a break of 16 years after having a shed built last November (2011) that I'll be putting a shop in. I haven't done much of any woodworking beyond home repairs and haven't paid much attention to the field for a long time because I had no place indoors to work. I had a shop of sorts on a partially enclosed porch where I kept my tools so they would rust more slowly than out in the open. I had a Shopsmith out there that I gave away several years ago after it became too rusty to use. As soon as the shed was done I found a Shopsmith with bandsaw on Craigslist and also a 2HP Reliant dust collector. I went to the Woodworking show in Springfield, MA in January with the intention to see what was new and get ideas of what I power tools I should start looking for on Craigslist and Ebay. That was my intention until I ran across the presentation given by Paul Sellers. Mind blowing. When I got home I looked Paul up on Youtube, found his blog and was converted. I no longer want a shop filled with power tools, noise and dust. I purchased the full set of DVD's and his book Working Wood and signed up to take his Foundation Course Part 1 at the New Legacy School of Woodworking in Greenwich, NY which I took last weekend 4-20 to 4-21-2012. If you get the chance, go. Financially it was a real stretch for me to go what with the fuel costs, lodging and the cost of the course. It was worth every penny and then some. As soon as I am able I'll attend Part 2.
