I’ve been reading from this forum for awhile now and thought I’d join the crowd. I started TRYING real woodworking about a year ago when I need a stand for my reef tank, I’ve watched my Dad and Norm all my life and thought ” it can’t be that hard”. Suprise I was wrong again, it’s hard to get a square cut from a 20 yr old black and decker circ saw with a dull blade. It worked fine when I trimmed the tree with it!! So after some reading here, I went and got a delta hybrid with wheels. My first router was next, bought some gadgets and gizmos that do nothing. Hit my local lowes for the second batch of lumber and scored on some red oak for sale cheap. I’ve been mechanical my whole life and done alot construction work, so that kinda helped. I just needed some of the right tools and materials to get started. At 45 I’m almost patient enough to do woodworking . I think my problem is I expect too much too fast. The fun part is that it challenges me. So for now I’ll keep tearing up lumber as I learn and try to learn as I go. Thanks to eveyone here who has posted their success’s and failures. ps. its a 120 gl reef tank.
