New to woodworking
Hi everyone, I am from Tulsa OK. I am a machinist by trade and have always wanted to do some woodworking but have never had the time/space to make it happen. I hope to start setting my garage up in the next few weeks after my wife gets recovered from knee surgery. I have already bought a small table saw, 12" band saw, a 6" jointer, a CMS, and several hand tools, drills, saws and such. I am working with a HORRIBLE worktable I built about 10 years ago, I think I was 20 years old at the time. I already have a few small simple projects lined up, my first build will be a SIMPLE wooden mallet. Then I am going to make some beer mugs, then a crate for beer bottles (I like beer if you had not come to that conclusion yet lol). I brew my own beer and some nice wooden 12 pack crates would look really cool for giving beer to friends. After that a few simple end grain cutting boards like I have seen on here, then a little more detailed cutting board like in the picture I am attaching. After those projects are done then I think I would like to build a nice woodworking bench. I have been going over plans, trying to decide exactly what I want to build. Well that's about all for now, I hope to start posting some pictures of my completed projects in the next few months.
