Hey folks. I decided I was going to get into the carpentry hobby. My background has been military, law enforcement, journeyman electrician and HVAC tech. This is new challenge so here we go.
I just bought a Ridgid TS3350 tablesaw, Ridgid DP 15501 drill press and a Ridgid R29301 router combo w/benchdog extention table. I already have a vast collection of hand tools so I think I’m through until my project calls for another. I’m goin to just play with scrap wood that I have laying around until I build a relationship with them.
My first project I am shooting to make a hope chest for my daughter. I’m thinking of something like a steamer trunk made of 1/2” vener and hardwood slats. The hardware I’ll get from an online source. I’ll stain it as opposed to canvas or tin sheathing and the inside I’ll paper.
I’ll start this project in mid May and will allow three weeks to complete it working just a couple of hours in the evening and all day Saturday.
Well see how it goes.
