What a great way to start out a great new year by having me join your club. Just kidding as I have nothing constructive to add yet....
Having said that, I am from NB Canada and I am looking to get involved in the art of wood working.
The two main projects that got me interested in woodworking is to build a poker table and to build a MAME arcade cabinet. Now since I have no clue in what I am doing yet, I figure I will start out with something a little smaller to help learn how to use power tools/saws safely and effectively. I would like to start out with the basics, learn some tips and tricks from the experts here, all while learning to make some simple wood projects.
The only power tool I have ever used before is a drill. To start, I would like to get a circular saw, jig saw, and a palm sander of some sort. I don't need anything real high end or heavy duty, but I don't want a cheap POS either.
So bear with me while I try to absorb every last bit of information I read and forgive for asking noob-ish questions that everyone should know. I am coming in blind.
And my #1 request....please help me keep all of my fingers and thumbs intact.
