Im 51 years old and have been doing Architectural woodwork for about 32 years now. Wow! I guess time flies when you're having fun.
I have a 600 sq ft garage shop where i have a Felder BF-49 combination jointer, planer, shaper, mortise and table saw machine. Besides lots of small power tools i also have a Grizzly horizontal sander, a small Jet dust collector, a Shop Fox version of a William & Hussey moulder, a Rockwell 10" radial arm saw, and a Magnum 14" bandsaw thats probably a few years older than me.
Custom entry doors seem to be my most frequent projects , but i enjoy the variety of possibilities in woodworking and sometimes head off on some pretty wild tangents. We gotta keep it interesting and fun!

Hi Miles,

Thanks for the kind words about my bear carving. As for being patient, I greatly respect the hand carvers who spend days chiseling, they’re the patient ones to me. I’m with you on the chainsaw note though, I just spent a few hours working on them, as of the moment I own 12, and 3 of them are working properly.
-Tim
PS. Nice work!
