First off, since joining the site this week, I have received many messages. Thanks for making me feel welcome – I am looking forward to years of enjoyment as I learn how to work the wood.
My first question is this: I have been looking at some of the available table saw books via the internet. I am wondering which one most of your recommend. I would like one that not only covers the creative and practical uses for the TS, but also provide some basic intro into building built-ins etc.
My second question: I have read some of the posts about where to source wood. Since I intend to start with some simple built-ins, a bookcase, etc… I am interested mainly in plywood. I did do some hunting around on woodweb and another site, but I am hoping there’s someone in the greater Cleveland area that can point me to 1 or 2 ‘local’ places where they have had good luck. (I do plan to call around to a couple of the local cabinet shops if I can’t find another option.
Third and last question (for today): Any other recommendations for project books or sites that offer good plans.
Thanks a million – Jim
