After my 3rd build i realize that my woodworking skills need to improve.
But the gods thing is i have time. Also i need more tools to get the job done. That will take time. I really enjoy the time i spend in the shop . So i will keep plugging away and keep trying to improve.

Ask any question anytime. You have the right approach, taking one project at a time, learning from each. Theirs thousands of years of experience here on this site is every form of woodworking, chances are someone has done what you want to do and can give some helpful tips.

Wolf, yes i have few tools and I’m learning make the best of what i got. Thank you for the tips.

Jim, i am 41 and have been doing some woodworking on and off. I have not done any for around ten years or so. I’m getting back into it. And collecting tools slowly. I have done a little by hand, that skill takes sometime to get right. But I’m working on it. I have several questions but i will get into that later, but i know i can ask you all for help and get it. That’s why this is such a great site.

Thank you both for the advice and help.

Hey Kevin, don’t know how old you are or how long you’ve been doing woodworking but its like anything you do. The more you do it the better you get. Equipment comes over time. I can tell you its taken me thirty years to get my stuff and if you can start out using hand tools and perfect that art, the machines will aid in production speed. However, personally I believe working wood by hand actually looks better. I don’t know why but it does. I cant speak for others only myself. What ever you do dont be in a rush to get all your equipment. Look at yard sales, Craigslist, antique shops Etc.. for quality hand tool for less. And Google what your looking at if you don’t know if s a good choice or post it on here and ask us were here to help each other.

You can do a lot with a few tools. You can make some yourself. I made a pretty decent router table from an aldi quarter inch router and a car jack. Keep the faith and spend time in the shop.
