Hello everyone! I'm Jen and woodworking is ruining my life, in a good way
. I got into this hobby about 2 years ago and just started making things for family and friends, started off making mostly wooden toys as gifts and then made my first piece of furniture; a bed for my 2-year old. The Kreg pocket hole jig has been my best friend - made a set of kitchen cabinets, several tool stands, blanket chests, a few workbenches. I always wondered what made Festool so good. One day I was showing my husband the Domino and some of the vacs online, and we were talking about how ridiculously expensive it is. Next thing you know the Domino and CT26 are on my doorstep for my birthday. So AMAZING! My husband said I needed the vac, because I'm literally covered in dust after almost every project, haha. So I'm officially hooked and naturally need more green tools.
I've had several more requests for garage/kitchen cabinets and built-ins. So, I've decided to sell my motorcycle and buy more power tools as my bike has been collecting dust in the garage for the past year anyway. Looking to get the MFT3 table, ETS EC 150/3 or /5 and TS55REQ (Had some pretty bad kickback trying to break down large sheet goods on my portable table saw, luckily I didn't lose any digits) Also, I currently have a Dewalt 618 router that's been working great for me, but that OF1400 router looks pretty awesome, do you think it's a must have or should I hold off since I have the Dewalt already? Any other recommended must have tools you think I should get?
Anyway, just wanted to say Hi and thanks for this website, there's so much useful info and I look forward to learning from everyone.
