My first woodworking project,wood routers for sale on ebay,plans for building a wood burning pizza oven - Try Out
After many months of waiting and watching them work, the other editors finally turned me loose in the shop last week to tackle my first-ever woodworking project: a simple bookshelf.
The one type of project that has always been on my radar has been the ability to build things out of wood.
Well, “turned me loose” is a strong phrase – I had quite a bit of coaching using the router to cut rabbets, and wielding my new block plane (a gift from Popular Woodworking contributor Carl Bilderback) to flush the edges.
I reassembled the frame in the office and for the first time joined the top surface to the frame.
Having left the business and returned to a more normal lifestyle, I have great urges to build things, from little crafts to big renovation projects. I need to seek out friends in my circle who have worked with wood or home renovation projects.
