Novice/apprentice woodworker just getting started in 2010. I like to work with my hands and want to get back into some woodworking projects to fill my time. My woodworking "shop" is off a cedar picnic table on my back patio (12' x 8'). Since I live in a retirement community (apartment), space is at a premium and can't accomodate the "big boy tools" such as a table saw, mitre saw or full size router table so right now am working with a circular saw, jig saw, portable drill and dremel tool (with router and drill press attachments). Also have an inexpensive HVLP spray gun that I have not used yet but want to use it applying stain and topcoat to my small projects.

Current projects I would like to complete this year (2010) is a pedestal (15"L x 12"H x 9"D box with rope moulding and applique to raise up a grandmother clock), wineglass cabinet (20"L x 48"H x 12"D cabinet with back mirror and front glass sitting on a 30" high table base) and staining and topcoating to a high gloss a piece of driftwood I have which will end up just being a large accent piece (about 24"L x 12" H).

I have also designed my own unique wood wall entertainment center (about 10'W x 7'H x 25"D with power strips, cooling fans, lighting and hidden cable runs et al.) which I had built to my specs and after having some one else build it decided I would like to do some of my own woodworking. Not that they didn't do a good job, just need something to occupy my own time now.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself almost a year ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
