This is my first ever woodworking project and my first entry into the world of Lumberjocks.com. Thanks in advance for all of the great content in here, it’s hugely helpful to a rookie like me.
I started considering woodworking a couple months ago. Through the holidays I read two beginner books and devoured online video content every moment I wasn’t working or being attacked by my little ones. I chose for my first project the same thing I’m sure most folks choose, a simple workbench. I’ve used the Getting Started in Woodworking website for a ton of info this past month, so I chose their Simple Sturdy Workbench video and plans. Thank you Asa Christiana! Despite many exciting hiccups along the way, I’m really happy with how it came out.
I bought some basic tools via this project (circ saw, router, random orbit sander, drill press, couple jigs, squares, countersink bit, etc), and of course I’ve got the bug so I’m dreaming of a table saw, miter saw, planer and jointer, but my wife is already ready to kill me so one thing at a time.
Next up – a shoe cabinet for the garage…
