I feel I am getting more confident in my ability to do woodworking. Being able to visualize my projects and have a real concept of what it will take to finish the next step or even the whole project, is very helpful to me. Trying something new that you think may just work perfectly, I have learned so much with this approach. You may surprise yourself. When I’m frustrated with the way things are going, having the ability to set that task aside and complete another part is very helpful. Often things work better the second time around. In my eyes somethings are rough around the edges but can always be improved, repaired or even used for something else. Thinking about the order things need to be assembled in order to give you the best result. I have been told I have a mechanical mind, I rely on it often. Have you ever studied something to see if you can tell how it was assembled or even how it could be improved? These abilities may help you be a better woodworker, something we all want to be.
