Life can be funny at times. I only took one wood shop class class when I was in middle school because it was minatory, just a 1/4 of the school year. I didn't build anything because of the fear of the power tools and missing body parts. High school I was into metals shop classes, figure worse case I'll get burned.
In 2008 I bought my house with a really big garage, for me that was the selling point, I fell in love with the garage lol. Right away I was so focus on remolding the garage. During that time I also watch a lot of home remolding shows where people save thousands of dollars on building there own cabinets, and told myself I can do that. That's also when I started buying tools for the shop, really cheap stuff you'll find like at Harbor Freight.
To overcome the fear of the power tools I watch a lot of safety videos on table saws and other tools, learned about the dangers what not to do. As soon as I got respect for the tool I was off building my first piece of furniture. Headboard for a queen size bed made out of construction grade lumber, 2x4, 2x6, 2x8" simple joinery, butt joints screwed together and the screws was covered with wood plugs. That's when my love of woodworking began.
