Retired from a desk job a few years ago and immediately began accumulating equipment for a shop as it went on sale (one primary piece of equipment each year). Longtime DIY'er (hated to part with $$$ to fix something; results always functional, not always pretty). Have spent most of this early period making shop fixtures, jigs and storage units as well simple apartment furniture/fixtures for my daughter's 'flat' (not sure how it differs from an apartment?). The pieces are functional, but lack form. Definitely desire to improve my craftsmanship and am finding since I am a newbie, most every project I undertake involves doing something(s) for the first time. Plus everything my daughter asks for is sans plans ("Dad, can you make me this?" showing me a picture of something from Ikea). I have struggled through them (usually wastefully and at greater expense than if I had bought the Ikea). Anyway, I've had questions about equipment/tool/material selection and techniques with every project. Looking forward to learning from the wisdom and experiences of others!
