Hello fellow Lumberjocks,
This is my first post on LJ, so I want to do it right!
One of my favorite classes in school was wood shop. Made a couple really nice projects, and in the 20 years since those wood shop days I have often have moments of nostalgia when I see a nice piece of wood furniture, or smell wood being worked.
Well screw nostalgia – it’s been 20 years and it is time to set up shop!
This site has been a great resource for reading tool reviews and getting ideas (admittedly you have to filter some of the off topic stuff though). So I have just purchased my table saw and jointer, and am ready to get to work.
My first project will be a co-sleeper for my daughter, who will be joining the world in about a month! Was hoping someone could give me some tips on cutting the large box joints that is used to join the back and sides as shown in the attached picture. I do have a dado blade for my table saw.
Thanks in advance, looking forward to working some wood!
