I guess it all started back in the day when my now late father taught me, by letting me do things by myself at a young age, to always dig deep to find a solution for any task at hand no matter how hard it seemed, this got stuck really well on me I think, and sometimes to the point of obsession I’m afraid hehee.
To be honest, it has been a source of some troubles, but mostly it is a source of great joy as it has lead me to a path for searching new things to learn and new things to create all the time, and for that I’m really grateful with my father, if only he could see!
And what brought me to woodworking? easy question, a woodworker lazy enough to even give me a quote I was looking for an enclosure for another of my hobbies, a do it yourself analog music synthesiser I was building.
So, with no help from him, I decided to take care of things myself and learn about woodworking too.
I been doing some simple small boxes for my electronic projects and so far so good, but after seeing all the nice projects over here I wanted to step up my game and start building beautiful things too and so the journey begins.
So far I have built some jigs to help me to gain accuracy and speed when making future enclosures for my other projects, and would love to hear from you any tips or advices for more jigs -if needed- to help me in this endeavour, thanks!
Oh, almost forgot to ask, what do you think would be best:
no-tilt bevel jig like this one? http://www.woodstore.net/nobeslpl.html
or a crosscut sled with the blade tilt at 45 angle?
I kind of hate to have to adjust the blade angle on the table saw :)
