Hello all,

My fifteen year old son and I are planning on spending some quality time together learning woodworking. I'm a big DIY type of guy with a strong background in mechanics, but woodworking will be fairly new to both of us.

We have a three car garage that we will make our new woodworking home and plan to start off with a nice table saw, compound miter saw, a band saw, and a router with table. Any suggestions for beginners is appreciated. We are delving deep into books and magazines before we make the plunge.

It looks like we have found a home with this site...many thanks!:thumbsup:

You can find many fine machines on Craigslist. Look daily and be ready to jump, the good ones go fast. Just looking quickly; there are a couple of decent machines in your area listed right now. I looked at grizzly, powermatic and jet, all good machines...you pay extra for the powermatic and jet nameplates. When you check for a bandsaw or tablesaw use both "band saw" and "bandsaw" as well as "table saw" and "tablesaw" they are listed separately. Good luck and have a great summer with your son. I am introducing turning to my 9 y.o. granddaughter. ken
