Brand new at this...loved Woodshop in middle school. My 4 year old eats dinner on a little bench I made from the 8th grade. Now I am 37 and suddenly wanting to learn again. Have made a couple projects including a wood box with a cool wood carrying top to bring wood inside...a couple saw horses, a guitar stand and newest is a fence-gate that fit perfectly the first time yesterday.
I bought a Shopsmith 5 and 1 woodworking tool last May with the advice and help of many LJ's and now 6 months later--still super pleased...
Woodworking goal: learn and have fun...grow as woodworker...work through and problem solve...
Will try to take some woodworking classes in the next year...but time is always the dilemna!
