I am a 71 year old retired Ironworker. In 2003 my wife and I moved from Texas to the Northern regions of the Idaho panhandle. We bought 11 wooded acres, cleared enough trees for our home site, then set about building it.
For the first time I have a dedicated (heated) shop in which to practice and hone my rudimentary woodworking skills. Although I have built high rises, banks, hospitals, bridges, etc. in my career I never considered myself a woodworker.
I am still in the process of gathering tools which I find in garage sales, Craigs list, Ebay, or thrift stores. But what I really enjoy is the challenge of making tools rather than buying them. I have made a 14" bandsaw, 23" thickness (drum) sander, and a pantorouter so far. (See my LJ projects)
My projects take forever because if I see the need for a tool or a jig that I don't have I will stop and make it.
I am glad to be a part of the Lumberjock community. You guys inspire me with your talent.
