I’m brand new on the woodworking scene, and would like to begin building my skills before investing too much money into the art. So far I have focused on procuring some basic hand tools (chisels, mallet, a couple of hand planes, dovetail saw, coping saw, sand papers). I would like to eventually move into the power tools with a circular saw, jig saw and router. Right now, funding is an issue, so I still don’t have a proper work bench or shop in which to work.
Does anyone know of any options that might exist in the DC area to use or rent space/tools? Perhaps something along the lines of a co-op.
Also, are there any forums to meet up with folks to learn some skills?
I’m primarily interested in functional woodworking (furniture etc) to begin with.
I appreciate everyone’s advice.
