this is the first entry in my blog so i figured that i would give an overview of what this blog is going to be about. i am by no means a professional woodworker who had been woodworking for 20 years. i am a beginner myself who had been woodworking for 1 year and i only have the basic hand power tools. i figured that i could offer what i know to younger or just beginning woodworkers and offer some alternatives for how to use basic hand power tools to do what the bigger tools do. i will be making this like a sort of a podcast if i can figure out how to put videos on here because i know that most people would enjoy a video more than reading a huge book. well i hope that any one who reads this will check out my next blog, which will be posted soon, where i will start by outlining some basic tools that i think small shop should have.
