Hello All,

I recently purchased a Craftsman 113.298032 table saw off of craigslist based on the recommendations of another thread on this forum. I’m completely new to woodworking and hope you guys will share some knowledge with me! I got the saw because I want to make a kitchen table (and I know that this is probably more advanced of a project than I have skill for right now) but for now maybe just some raised beds for gardening, and perhaps a bee box or two. If you guys have any other good beginner projects that I could tackle I’d appreciate you thoughts and ideas! a few other questions I have are what kind of tools I should look at getting now?

Thank you All,
Picture of my saw, Please pardon the mess, I just bought my first house and haven’t finished getting organized yet!

Virtually everyone here will answer your questions. A lot of skill is how willing you are to study and learn. There are plenty of good designs out there for tables you can do. Just don’t cut corners, take your time to do it right. If you hit something that you don’t understand, feel free to ask.
