My husband loves to create things out of wood in the garage and I think that this would be a very great tool for him to add to his collection. When he is outside working he gets in a zone it is almost like a stress reliever for him. He is very talented at what he does he says its just a hobby for him. Although his grandfather used to build fine furniture for living out of his workshop he had on his land he was self taught and was also very talented. My husband has always looked up to his Grandfather and has talked highly of him for as long as i can remember. I really feel that my husband is just as talented as him and with the right tools he can create many things. Over the years he has made us many things such as dressers, bedroom furniture, a kitchen table, cutting boards and so much more.
