I'm new to woodworking. I've just started getting into it in the last 6 months or so. I need the patience.

I've got some power tools, but I've become enamored with hand tools in the last 3 months. I'm going to take a basic hand tools class (I hope it's not too basic) in Apri '09l. I'm very excited.

There's just something about building something yourself.
