I am new to this forum so I thought I would just introduce my self. My name is Tom, on another forum my name is tablesawtom. I am retired, but have been woodworking for about 40 years. I am not a Neanderthal, but I do believe woodwoking requires a mix of handtool experience as well as the ability to use power tools. I believe that the work bench is the most inportant tool in the shop. It is also my favorate thing to build, but I only need one at time, so it presents a problem. My other hobbie is old woodworking tools. I like them all but I really like restoring hand planes. I hope what I have to say will be somewhat of an interest to you here on this forum.
