I appreciate your advice KnottScott, Due to my lack of experience, I really did not know what to look for. As far as what I want to do, I would like to be able to make tables, maybe shelves, maybe even small crafts. It is hard for me to say just yet. My first project just getting into woodworking was a breakfast table for my wife. I am not looking to make anything large scale. Maybe as I delve into woodworking more, I might find the desire to expand my horizons and scale of projects. As I am looking in my "Wood" magazine. I find myself saying.."Wow, I would like to make that," however, I lack the knowledge or know how (maybe even confidence) to take it from picture to reality. I probably need to start small and work my way up. Do you think this TS3660 from Ridged will suit my purpose? and would you or anyone have any advice on the prospects of starter projects to build my confidence and skill level?
