Wow I have been humbled from looking on this website at the project that have been completed. At least 70-80% would be out of my reach right now or very difficult. I have immense respect for the ability of the woodworkers on this website and across the world. I have always though one of the problems with this world is that so many parents either do not or cannot for whatever reason share their trade (many times because they have a career but no trade I.E. working in wood on cars or cooking).
My son has been interested and involved with each project and building is own as well while my shop has taken shape. I hope to learn from you guys and future projects to build items close to some of the impressive projects out there. I must admit I am redneck through and through my work bench is a kitchen table with a two x four shelf over it my assembly table is out of two x fours and mdf.
I am just glad there are websites like this out there for guys like me just starting out who can learn and see things that twenty years ago would have only been possible if the woodworker was exposed to a guild or learned woodworker willing to show them how to do it.
-- why get a plan when you can get even more experience
