A lot of us started out doing fixit and DYI stuff and gradually accumulated enough tools to start woodworking. If you're younger, DIY where you make it look like a pro's work, borders on more advanced woodworking. It's a great hobby, but kind of expensive as you add tools and do more advanced projects. You probably already have learned the good wood isn't cheap either. So welcome ahd we hope to see some of your projects soon.

Thanks. I am 27, recently bought my first house, and even more recently got a bunch of old tools and a workbench set up in my basement from my grandfathers old stuff so i am hoping to start working on projects and adding some pyrography to the stuff i make rather than just buring on basswood canvas.

I appreciate the advice.

Grandfather's tools rings a bell for a many of us. By the time you've accumulated a workshop full of them, you start to think about who'll inherit them. The dreaded thought is they'll be sold off cheap and wind up rusted boat anchors.

Welcome to the forum Michael. Where in New England? You don't have much info in your profile. It would
help if you add more info when you can.
Apologies. I will update my bio as soon as I have a few free minutes around work.

I am from MA, close to Boston. But i have recently bought a house in Southern NH.

I took as much as i could. Some other family members got other stuff as well. In the end, very few was sold off. Which is good or he would be back to haunt us for it.

I have fond memories of watching him work on things and "helping", so taking them was a No-brainer. Now i just need to learn how to use some of them haha.
