Howdy! I am relatively new to woodworking. I've yet to make the obligatory birdhouse, but I've made a few other more complex things. I'm glad to have found this site.
Just to give you an idea of what I have:
Tablesaw - Craftsman cheap model for now
Miter Saw - decent 10" compound but not sliding
Drill Press - benchtop model - again small.
various hand tools and saws (Western-style rip and crosscut as well as a Japanese-style universal rip/crosscut saw coming in the mail soon.)
I've yet to get a hand plane. That will probably be my next purchase.
I've only made 2 projects that I would call woodworking projects (I've made several other rough carpentry items). I made a quilt ladder for my mom for Christmas. It turned out nice for a first project. I learned a lot on the way and will probably make another one in the next couple months. My mom is a quilter and sells her quilts at antique shops, and the ladders should help her displays. I've also made a rolling, foldable workbench for the shop/garage.
Right now I'm taking up the entire garage with my stuff plus the normal lawnmower and other items, but I'm going to have to consolidate down to a single half of the garage soon so my wife can have the other half.
I hope to contribute sometime soon.
