Today I had some time in between activities and I decided to give my new router table a try. I got a 1/4” rounding over bit and decided to give the new poplar chickencoop windows some nice detail at the front. After doing that I sanded with...

I'm a 50 year old female, who has too many hobbies already. Many of them are fiber/textiles related -- spinning, weaving, knitting, sewing/quilting etc. I always enjoyed watching woodworking shows, and yearned to do this myself too, but I never wanted to make the monetary investment in good tools, so I never attempted any serious woodworking because I figured without good tools I would be setting myself up for disappointment.
We're moving into a new house and now we had a need to build/remodel a shed into a chickencoop. So I saw my chance to get some good quality tools and to attempt to do this myself. I got me a 10" Makita sliding miter saw and a 1.75 hp milwaukee router, in addition to a workbench kit and some sturdy sawhorses. I already have a circ. saw, a jigsaw, a cordless drill and various handtools, so I figured that with this setup I could attempt some basic woodworking.
It's been quite addictive and I think I'll continue to enjoy this. The list of projects I want to do is growing everyday! ....
As if I needed another hobby!

The shed to be remodeled into a chicken coop was delivered Monday night. It is the yellow one in the front. The guy who delivered it had a neat little trick by lowering it on pvc pipe so that he could move it around and turn it 90 degrees. Very...
