I started woodworking as a hobby in the early 2009.
When I bought my house 5 years ago I decided to take a woodworking class and learn. I have been fortunate the local adult school offers woodworking classes. I am most fortunate the classes are taught by one of the best teacher I have ever known. He has 30 years of experience as a machinist and as a woodworker; most of all he is a quick thinker. And he does insist on precision.
We make fantastic projects. I have not posted class projects here on LJ.
I still attend class from time to time. There is always something to learn and people there are great.
I do experiment a lot at home; 6 days a week belong to the family and work. One day on the weekend is mine for woodworking. For every project I finish there are at least half a dozen that ends up in the recycle bin.

The octagonal table project is making some progress! I have now successfully routed the leg(not totally satisfied). I was encountering some problems during the pattern routing of the legs as I described in my last 2 blogs: http://lumberjocks.c...
I made some progress on routing the legs for my octagonal table that I blogged about last time. Some of you remember that the oak was “grabing” on the router bit and the leg would shatter.http://lumberjocks.com/lanwater/blog/18200 F...
