I’m a designer (and old fashioned draftsman) who is trying to get properly started in woodworking. Although I’ve designed many things in the past, I’ve built only a few, a TV stand, a couple of coffee tables, a modern bookcase..things of that sort. Not much really, until you consider the paucity of tools in my possession and my reliance on home centers for materials. Given that, I’d say I did alright.
In any case, I’ve got a head full of ideas and a handful of tools and want very much to see some of my designs brought into the real world. Also, as someone who was for a long time unable to work, hope springs eternal that I can take my creative ability and love for wood and perhaps make a small, local, niche business.
I welcome all suggestions from the craftsman here. I’m particularly interested in talking to people in my neck of the woods, i.e., northern New Jersey, (specifically Montclair) as they would know what resources are available here.
Thanks in advance.
