If I can do it, so can you.
Dont be afraid to try something new.
Set small reasonable goals, plan your steps, be patient, congratulate yourself on small gains, practice on scraps.
The biggest cause of failure for me was time. Dont set a time limit, its not a race. Your goal is to take however much time at every step of the way to get it done correctly and then move on to the next step. If you hurry, you will likely make more mistakes.

This is why its been awhile since my last post. One of the problems with shaping wood to this extent is any flaws show up. Figured Bigleaf Maple, aka Western Maple, Oregon Maple, Acer macrophyllum, can have pits, bark inclusions, etc… Wel...
The handle.I did not like how the handle was looking, it appeared to lack any of the swirling grain that the top inset panel has. That happens sometimes after shaping, the good stuff ends up on the floor. Also… if you look close, you will noti...
