Hello from MN
After joining the forum and making a couple of posts, I should introduce myself.
I have a small shop in my basement with a growing set of tools and not nearly enough time for them. Projects typically can take a few months. Much of my free time is consumed by home maintenance.
I would categorize myself as an "experienced beginner" or "novice". I've had my shop for about eight years.
My most complicated project to date was a maple night stand that involved a lot of "firsts" for me: tapered legs, mortise & tenon joints, a drawer, dovetail drawer joints, and fitting the wood drawer glides/stops. I also tried to do more hand planing and scraping than sanding.
I dislike finishing.
I am currently building a set of melamine cabinets for the laundry area - another "first".
