Where do I start.....I'm 31 yrs old. I just bought my current home a pre-civil war two story that need some TLC! I'm really new to woodworking, but willing to learn. I do a lot of painting and repurposing furniture projects, but my building has been limited to a few small tables and shelves. I have the basic tools...small table saw, miter saw, drills........but limited experience! So bare with me and with your help and advise ...maybe I can post some projects soon!

Hi Nikki

Welcome to LJ’s

There’s a huge wealth of information here and everyone is ready and willing to help, I like you hadn’t a clue but with the help of LJ’s I’ve come a long way in my projects, pull up a chair, settle in and ask away. :)

Making small tables and shelves IS woodworking, assuming they are made of wood. I’m glad you joined us and didn’t get frightened away by the gang over at Stumpy’s thread.
