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...
