Welcome Ranbo,

We welcome newbies here, especially me because they're really the only ones that I can offer any assistance to. The veteran Woodworkers here know so much!

I wish they all had USB ports in the back of their heads so I could just plug in and download all that they know.

Since that's not the case this forum is the next best thing. You'll be amazed what you can learn here.

Also, I recommend that you go through all the threads here because there are many links to great sources of information as well as the info you'll find in the threads.

Also, subscribe to Woodsmith and Shopnotes magazines. These aren't the only mags out there but as a subscriber you'll have access to all of their downloadable PDF files on tips and plans. I've built quite an extensive reference library this way.

I also have five or six of their books that are very reasonably priced.

I know this sounds like a woodsmith infomercial but as an intermediate woodworker I have learned alot from them as well as the pros in this forum.

Believe me, you'll make plenty of mistakes but you'll learn from them.

Last but not least check out the safety category in thus forum. It has photos of some pretty grisly accident results. Let them scare you just enough to make you respect that your tools don't care what they cut whether it be metal, wood or flesh!
