Pushin' 60, ok ok just passed 61. I prefer old tools and living in Western Mass is ideal for this affliction. Home to Goodell-Pratt, Millers Falls, Langdon, Greenfield Tool and so on. I take lessons at the Hill Institute in Florence and am enrolled in their furniture program. With the exception of my planer and band saw, even my power tools are vintage.
Current project is a pair of night stands of my own design.
Added an ATC last year and this year will be building a bench
