I am a artist/photographer/recycle artist/crafter/ faux room painter/ fly fisherman... etc. I have most every tool I need to do house remodeling...of which my house is still a work in progress. now I am trying to teach myself woodworking for furniture. My dad was a woodworker most of his life. He gave me my first tool... a ten inch delta band saw, which I gave to my son, who is now making wood boxes as a hobby. I now have Rigid tools, the Kreg tools and a few others. I became unemployed last year and have been brain storming ever since. I have decided to learn to make simple furniture. I am collecting reclaimed wood and pallet wood plus a supply of plywood. I enjoy watching the Rob Cosman youtube videos. I also like to use wood in crafts.
So, yes, I am a beginner. I love the look of furniture that has no nails or screws. something about the purity of design. So, I will be attempting this style as well as those using the Kreg pocket hole system.
I used to be the tool lady at home depot years ago... and i asked for that department because for some odd reason, I love wood working tools! And of the other 5 in the woodworking department, I was the one they chose to demonstrate the tools, and the only one with a woodworking shop.
At present, I have my home rented out and I am visiting in SC... so no nice shop- so not going to be easy to do this, as i only have a small shed to store my tools and a small work table. .. but country girls can do anything!
My next big tool will be a Rigid planner. I look forward to learning from you pros and hope you don't mind having a novice female butting in from time to time...

thank you, the learning process is stressful… trying to figure it out on my own… I did manage to make a crate from boards from an oak pallet. I also put a new blade on my rigid table saw after i had several kickbacks… (figured that since the blade looked it was well used… maybe it needed to go) I chose the diablo 24 teeth blade…it was a bugger get it off so I had to get help…but cut though the pallet wood like butter… so I am just practicing making crosses and crates and wood crafts out of pallet wood and a toddlers rocking rooster out of plywood and boards. thanks for the encouragements!

Welcome to the group. Working with pallets be sure to check and recheck for nails in the lumber. It’ll save your blades and $.
