I started back in 1996 when I was stationed in CA because of the military. I took wood working back in High school in 84-86, but when I went into the US Navy Seabees, I did not have a chance to do anything or get anything until 1996 when I purchased a table saw, 10" miter saw, a router, palm sander and a planner all Ryobi. Back then I had a little table where I put the planner on the table and then I put that aside and put the table saw up there to rip, then put it down and then put the miter saw up there to cut it length, then I clamped the projects to the table if I had to router it or whatever. I started working outside in a little car port having no room to set up anything since the table I had to use, which I had to put in the shed every night and get back out. Then we finally moved back home to Missouri where I have a little more room, this is after 15 years and I still have all of my Ryobi tools that I started out with. With these tools I have built multiple projects and these are just a few pictures of them.
