Being new to the site and to woodworking, figure I’d post my first projects as a greenhorn and what led to me wanting to learn more and actually make things right, i guess you could say. My fiance wanted me to make some table she found on pintrist, which is the dark stained table in the first pic. Was fun doing it which made me want to do and learn more, the wood use and joinery and what not is crap but i didn’t know anything really about building really anything and was just going off some pictures. Got a bunch of 150 year old barn wood from a friend of mine and decided to make the other stuff. Made the mirror which everyone seems to like and a couple log cabin birdhouses for my mom and grandmother for Christmas. Made the other little table because the one we had was falling apart and it’s getting the job done and used some of the scrap to make some drink coasters. Been reading a lot since we’ve had too cold of weather to practice/build in my garage so ready for warmer temps to try out new and better things and use better wood, old barn wood is kind of a pain since it’s warped and different sizes and what not but at least it was free. Sorry for the long post, could have broken it down but only had a final pic of them all, hopefully in a few months I’ll have some better stuff to post since i still have a lot to learn.
