I like anything creative.... I started woodworking about 4 years ago- with a cheap tablesaw, and few other tools. Now I have a decent tablesaw, and need to hone my skills on using other tools. My first nice project was a cradle for my brother, then one for my kids. I moved onto making kitchen cupboards, mainly to save money. That's when I had to buy more tools (Darn!) I am hooked. My skill level has increased, by trial and error, but I am still a beginner! I have learned mainly by reading, reading, reading. Now that I'm a grandma, I'd like to start making children's furniture and outside play equipment.
