Hello everyone,

I’m fairly new to the world of wood working and recently took up a position as an operations officer at a small business that does design and fabrication. I’m trying to learn more about the craft to help me do my job better and just wanted to introduce myself.

I’ve been poking through the boards and already I’m developing a better understanding of the craft. It’s good to be here :)

Welcome!

What kind of woodworking do you do, or WANT to do?

Well as of now I’m still more on the office side of things so I’m still learning the very basics, but the fabrication firm I’m working for does all sorts of stuff, primarily furniture.

Setting up your shop with cabinets, storage and workbenches is a good way to learn the basics and get something accomplished. You can be as fancy as you want or paint them who cares it is the shop. I make every new wall cabinet a different color and every workbench cabinet a different color stain.
Mostly, enjoy the hobby.

Wow what a great shop and idea. I love that because then as you’re building and adding on, you not only keep track of when you did stuff but what a great way to test different colors and techniques. I love that!

Great conversation starter for guest as well. Could be why you used the color? Or a funny story of how you cut the boards too short and worked with what you had. LOL
