So always wanted to get into woodworking and have finally settled in a decent job for a year or two before I move again, so we’ll not masterpieces by any opinion. Can’t learn unless you mess up and make things that look well.. Like the above, although rather happy with my map! That’s a trial for a larger whole world one I want to try out, and the seat and table are trials for a more we’ll put together outside lounge,
And star was jus cause I saw something on here similar and thought I’d give it a go..

These are all from old pallets and my very small collection of hand tools! Why waste money on good wood when you know it will come out not so good, tools will get upgraded as and when I can afford and able to go to a proper town to buy them,

Very good start. Although good tools are nice, most great projects are accomplished by the person not the tools. Just continue to learn on everything you build.

I made some of my first projects with inexpensive handsaws. It just starts growing (as does you investment). As you do better and better with each successive project, you will find fulfillment in doing things you never thought possible. Before long, you will create something that takes your own breath away. In the meantime, congratulations on your good solid creations. You are way closer to amazing than you can possibly imagine.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!
