I started woodworking a few years ago when my wife and I needed more storage space in our kitchen. Dissatisfied with much of the furniture available within our budget I decided to make a pantry out of pine with thin panels. I used a borrowed circular saw and hand drilled my own pocket holes without a jig (I didn't even know what a jig was!). A few mistakes were made and I learned a lot; number one being that I could actually make my own furniture! We've since moved to a more perminent house and are starting to make it more of a home by adding pieces of furniture etc that we actually want to have. Before it was simply a mix-match from our single years. I'll post my re-furnishing process here as I really appreciate being able to see what others have done. Lumberjocks is a great site for education and inspiration. I'm glad to be here.
