I've got all the essential tools(table saw, miter saw, router, ect.) As far as my skills are concerned however, based on a skill level ranging from beginner to expert, I'm just below beginner. My drawing skills are no better. My primary issue is trying to get the right measurements on all the individual pieces I need to cut in order achieve the specified dimensions without having the completed projects looking unsymmetrical. There's also the difficulty of not knowing how the pieces are supposed to be assembled. I'm pretty much working blind as a bat here. That is unless I have some sort of plan to go by.
