Huge piles of Scrap
I have read comments like the one you made, alot, "I'm not very good with wood". Not everyone on this thread is a craftsman in the "Finewood working department" mainly me. What i wil tell you is this, i'm not a great welder, know enough about a computer to get myself in trouble, and the list could go on longer than i can type. Here is the point i am trying to make, not everyones skill level can produce projects like Kenbo, Firehawk, and so many others on this forum. What you need to do is just slow down, ask questions when you need advice and "ENJOY" what you do when you are in your shop. Remember you work with wood not to please others but to please yourself and if you can do that well thats all that matters.
Kenbo and Firehawk, i used your names just as examples so please don't take it the wrong way, i have seen your work and both of you IMO are true craftsmen.
