I have yet only made 2 things from wood – self taught just to see if I could.
They aren’t pretty or perfect but considering they were firsts for me, I feel I didn’t do too badly.
The first was a puzzle frame. My miter saw was not squared up so the joints are off some. Routering out the back so the puzzle is recessed was interesting too (with router attachment for my Dremel)
