I am just starting in wood working. For the past two years we have been remodeling an old Victorian (1884) in Portland, Maine. Now that it is finally in a livable condition and with a new baby on the way, decided it would be fun to start exploring and learning about wood working. I am taking my first class now and love it! The next step is to build the workshop.

This next step involved shaping the bottom of the base. After scribing a line 2 1/8 inches in, I used a circular saw set to a depth of 7/8 inch. The next time I do something like this I will make the cuts closer together to make removal easier. ...
I am pretty psyched how this is coming along. This week I started shaping the base. I used a band saw with 76 degree bevel and used a belt sander with table angled at the same bevel to clean the edge. Scribing the line an inch inside the oval for...
