Just an observation

I cannot believe the progress that has been made in hand and power tools in the last 20 years
Plus the availability to the homeowner
Times used to be all you needed was a few various hammers. Now I have 6 different pneumatic nail guns

I sure wish all this stuff was available when I was starting out

It's like, a miracle, I tell ya'!

It sits next to my desk
I'm thinking of getting a cordless circular saw

I have 2 circular saws-one cored, one cordless. I LOVE the cordless because it's lighter and easier for me to handle.
The next thing on my list to purchase is a router or compound miter saw.

I still use hand planes and chisels, but I have gotten lazy through the years

@Queen Evie
Make sure it's a decent horsepower plunge - router
Make sure it's a sliding compound miter. I don't even use the radial arm any more

I get scolded like a kid to stay off the lawn tractors :flowers:

I am mostly pleased with the magnetic tipped drivers and cordless bits

The question is never "What tools do you have?", it's "What tools are you buying this week?". I've got enough cordless drills with DWC (Dead Won't Charge) batteries it's crazy. Actually just bought a new 7v Snap-on driver the other week and it's slick no more need for the big drills in those tight places (like under the sink or in my case under the dash). Some of the new stuff is slick and then some of it's usless.
