No machinist experience here whatsoever but I have developed some unexpected skills since starting this journey.

Not sure what to call it other than the ability to visualize a finished product. I call myself spatially challenged, because unless I had instructions, I couldn’t picture in my mind how parts related to each other or why an angle would be needed in a particular place. For example, when I first started thinking about making an end grain cutting board, it wasn’t clear to me which cut was for the height of the board, and which cut was for the width.

After a few ww projects, I’ve noticed that things like that ‘make sense’ now. I have a pattern in mind for an end grain cutting board, and I’ve thought through how I’ll have to do the cuts.
WW has definitely caused me to step outside of my comfort zone and exercise a previously neglected part of my brain!
