New from Austin Area

Hello all, new to the forums here and just recently getting into woodworking. I have always loved woodworking and building things since my years in woodshop back in high school(maybe decades would be a better time frame)

I am slowly building up my tool inventory, slowly but surely. I am actually building a lean-to shed and bricking it in this week to move all of the non-woodshop junk from my 3rd car garage to give me the space I need.

My current tools:

10" Tablesaw
Circular Saw
Belt Sander
Palm Sander
Orbit Sander
Misc. handsaws

Tools I would like to acquire:

Plunge Router/table
Drill Press

I know there are a million other tools I will want to acquire over time, but if I had to get only 1 thing next, I think the router is going to be my best bet.

Now, I just need to get busy and start learning all of the proper techniques for using everything........any takers? :)
