Hello from Central Pennsylvania
I am a Elementary Certified, public school teacher in central Pennsylvania. For the past 8 years, I have taught 6th grade science full-time. I was a self-contained 5th grade teacher for four years prior to that.
I grew up on a small, hobby farm. I am fairly handy. I can do most home-improvement type stuff. I enjoy welding and working with metal. But, just recently I got an itch for working with wood.
At this point, I don't have any fine, woodworking equipment. But, I am looking at getting some stuff . . . that's why I joined your forum. I am not new to forums. But, I am new to woodworking forums . . . specifically this forum.
I would like to get a jointer, planer, and table saw. I do have a budget, but I want to get stuff that will serve me for many years. For the most part, I do not care about getting the best names, as this equipment will be only used by a hobbyist. But, I want to get stuff that is solid and large enough to not limit any future projects I may want to take on.
I look forward to participating in your forum.
