    I am a 40+ year telecom guy with a lifetime passion for woodworking. My dad was a woodworker and his dad was a cabinet maker in a shop in South Boston. I still use some of their tools to this day, including my grand dad's bandsaw and his chisel and my dad's handsaws and hammers. Keeps me in touch with them.

    Glad to have found you guys and looking forward to learning from all of you.

    All the best,

    John

    Hey Neighbor, welcome from Taunton Massachusetts. My woodworking started with my Grandfather. I can still remember working with hand tools as a young boy. I bet that old band saw you're running purrs like a kittin. The older equipment was made to last . Hope you enjoy the site
