Just learning the trade...
Hey guys -
I'm a new hobbyist woodworker. I've really only been woodworking for a little over a year now. I've always been a DIY guy and built various things (shelves, storage racks, bins, boxes) but mostly just rough stuff and just took on the trade to more 'fine woodworking'. I've built a couple of toy boxes for my kids, built my workbench, and finishing up a picnic table now. The toy boxes were mostly plywood and pre-planed lumber, my workbench is made of southern pine that I planed to square and thickness, and my picnic table is really the first project I've taken on from all rough sawn lumber (cypress). That's about the extent of my experience!
I enjoy working with hand tools and that has been something I've really taken on more of lately. I'm still building my arsenal of hand saws, planes, chisels and the like, but I have enough for most projects. I have a couple young kids, with another on the way actually, so not a ton of time to dedicate to the craft, but I do what I can. I've learned to take my time and just enjoy it.
I look forward to learning anything from the experience on this forum and will contribute anywhere I can!
