I’m just getting started in woodworking and just completed my first project. A simple sqaure frame headboard for our guest bedroom – I’ll get a pic up soon.
I’ve got a couple other projects in the works – a picture frame and a mission-style couch table. Trying to learn as much as I can about methods tips and tricks. One of the exciting things about taking on a new hobby is that you have so much to learn, everything is new to me and even simple things make me say “WOW!”.
I’ve ‘tinkered’ some in the past, my uncle is a trim carpenter / cabinet maker and I worked a couple summers with him – I mostly spent time cutting and nailing baseboard and window trim. :-)
I’m actually a tech-geek and prefer most things to be state-of-the art. However I have a passion for learning traditional techniques in woodworking. I prefer not to use nails or screws unless absolutely necessary – I know, it’s corny, but I feel the project is more pure when it’s all wood.
Looking forward to learning new and creative ways of using my tools and seeing all the great projects everyone is working on. I’m sure I’ll have a ton of questions
