New Guy from Connecticut
I am new to wanting to get into woodworking. I'm currently in the building trades (I do plumbing/heating) and have been trained in other building trades too. I first went through a welding program, then got an electrical license, now I'm about to get my plumbing license.
Woodworking has always been an interest of mine, and even though I've done little stuff here and there, I now REALLY want to learn how to do it. I'd LOVE to build my own kitchen cabinets although I think I may start by making new doors for my existing cabinets.
I have MANY hand tools, but my serious tools are very lacking. I have no table saw or any other "big" tools. For hand held power tools I have circular saw, router, random orbit, belt sander, power planer, dremel, miter saw, a VERY small and cheap band saw, a few drills/drivers etc.
I think my next purchase is going to be a decent table saw. I like what I read so far about the new granite topped Ridgid that is out.... but have also been checking Craigslist for cabinet saws and good contractor saws as well as a deal on a decent bandsaw and jointer.
I think I'll learn a lot here as I read though all the posts! I know I have a LOT to learn!!
