Hello Lumber Jocks!
Yet another unexperienced, developing craftsman has arrived to lean on this community and hopefully contribute in a positive way. I’ve signed up here because I’ve found that I’ve been browsing the forums more and more lately and this community looks helpful and friendly.
I’m very much a DIY kind of guy and will naively accept any project that I’m completely unprepared for, just for the chance of getting my hands dirty. Last year I bought my first home, which has many improvements to be made and promised my wife I could do it all myself, and I will!
Besides building pine wood derby cars as a kid, I’ve got no real experience wood working. I’ve always had a passion to build things with wood, however apartment living wasn’t very conducive to this passion. Now that I’ve got my own garage, I’ve purchased a full set of Craftsman cordless tools, a nice contractors tablesaw, a router and a chop saw. I know there’s going to be more tools required in the future, but I’ve still got to get moving boxes out of the garage.
My current plans are to blog here about my projects, giving full details of my learning curve and bloody mistakes. I would absolutely love any recommendations, constructive criticism and feedback you’d like to give me. However, undaunted by poor feedback or none at all, I’ll continue to outline my experiences for those that might just benefit from this blog.
Current Project List:
Garage Organization / work shop
King Size Bed Frame / Head Board
Computer Desk and Shelving
and so much more.
It’s likely this list will take a couple years to complete, but I’ll stay positive and imagine it being completed next week.
Stay thirsty my friends.
