My name is Jim, and I’m pretty much a woodworking newbie. I have great memories of my father working in his shop and coming up with some pretty nice projects, and woodworking has always been something that I wanted to be good at. Unfortunately, I have never put the time into it, thinking that it took some sort of mystical power or innate skill. Now I’ve decided to challenge that and start trying my hand at small projects and getting the basics down.
I stumbled on this site while looking for classes in my area, and am going to have to follow up on some of the advice that was given in previous posts. This morning, however, I am off to the hardware store to pick up some of the basics—I figure I’ll get myself a combination square, a good hand saw, pencils, C-clamps, and maybe a planer and coping saw…..and start working on joints. I took wood shop in grade school, so maybe all this will come back to some degree….;)
Anyway, “hi” to everyone, and I look forward to a great relationship with the Lumberjocks!
