Well, here I go!
A move away from overpriced California to much more affordable Arizona means that at 40, I finally own my own home. More importantly, I have my own workshop! Well, it’s more of a garage as things still get organized, but it’s on the way. It’s starting small, but on the way. I’ve got a new miter saw, and a well loved belt/disc sander that I picked up at a yard sale the other day. I have a narrow work bench that I want to put some wheels on, and picked up a low end vice to put on it. I’ve got a few files, a coping saw, and a couple other hand saws. Yup, that’s it. But, it’s a place to start. I’ve been listening to a few woodworking podcasts, and have decided that my best plan to start is to pick small and easy projects, and buy tools as I need them. It seems like boxes are a usual starting point, so perhaps I’ll start there. I’m excited to find this website, seems (so far) like it’s going to be a great resource as I learn and grow in woodworking.
