Complete and total newbie.
Watched everyone else in my family, including my brother, build stuff my entire life but I had no interest - but did build the world's worst (and lowest) coffee table about ten years ago. Finally got the bug last year when I bought a power drill to add shelves to my closet. Haven't done much since (patio table; frames/stands for old stadium chairs/dog bed) but have been growing the tool collection and finally, at 36, got the bug.
I will ask many, many dumb questions.
-- May the good Lord help me if I ever actually have a shop, garage or basement.

Hell has officially thawed out (I think) so I’m back in the “shop”—a term I still, unfortunately, have to use in the loosest possible manner. So because I’m still working outdoors, and Wisconsin in winter is not cond...
Taking a break from a disastrous Christmas-present-making effort and wanted to just spend a moment saying “thanks.” In my industry, I spend a lot of time online; Facebook, Twitter, message boards, blogs and so on and so forth. Long ...
I was not what most would consider “a good student” in high school. In fact, I feel like I should be paid royalties every time the phrase “[Insert name here] would be an A student if only he’d apply himself” is used t...
I’ll post some introductory reviews in the next couple days, but for now, just wanted to “show off” the latest additions to my “workshop” (a term I still use in the loosest possible sense as I’m still a Downtown...
