New here and new to woodworking

Hi all! I'm a stay-at-home mom and I've recently gotten interested in trying my hand at some woodworking projects. I have next to no experience with anything like this, but I am eager to learn! I look forward to learning a lot here!

How old are your kids??? My older kids are 18, 16, 13, 10 and 8, so they don't need as much attention anymore. My youngest is 14 months, she's the one who keeps me hopping! (did I mention we homeschool?)

(so what's the coffin for???)

Welcome Arymanth. Great to see more women getting interested in the trade.

Do one thing at a time, do it well, then move on.

Coffins are for corpses, and in the end this one is no different. I am thinkng about making it with shelves to be used as an upright curio or display cabinet until the end user, uses it.

It's a prototype. I am not building it for anyone in particular in case you are wondering. I have been threatening to build caskets for about 4 years, if not longer, and I am just now getting around to it.

I'm thinking about subbing it out so I don't have to quit playing.

A formidable female business aquaintance of mine is very proud of the burr coffee table she has made. I never really knew what a burr was until she explained it is a natural lumpy outgrowth with fascinating grain.
