Location: Wrentham, MA

My first exposure to woodworking was with my grandfather in his shop in NH. Took some wood shop in junior high and worked for a carpenter as a summer job while in college.

Bought our house in 1990 and have been doing most work my self since then.

As I approach retirement my plan is to get more seriously into furniture making. I hope to use power tools for board prep only but I'll see how that goes.

My shop is a basement shop in two rooms. The new room is 20x20 where I have an Ulmia workbench
Laguna 14/12 bandsaw
Jet drill press.
Manual miter saw
Delta grinding wheel
Sharpening station
Dewalt bench top thickness planer
More than 30 hand planes, a mix of refurbished Stanley and a few Lie Nielsen and Veritas
Several hand saws
Lie Nielsen, Narex and wood handled Marples chisels

The old room has
Delta contractors table saw
Delta compound miter saw
Delta jig saw

Wow! I just came to your home page to see where you were from. We lived in a small 2 bedroom on 33 Ames Ave in Wrentham MA from 1970 to 1977 then had house built in Franklin on 110 Mill St. Bezema bought the the house on Ames Ave then it burned down them Mr. Bezema built a huge home on the lot. Small world!
We now live in St Augustine FL.

-- St Augustine FL, Experience is the sum of our mistakes!

Small world, we have been here for almost 26 years. Moved in the day my youngest was born.

Our boys are now grown and out on their own and my plan is to get some serious furniture making going when I retire.
