INTRODUCTION
Hi my name is Patrizio, I live in Australia Sydney, I am 35 years old Male. I am an Electrician and been in the trade for over 10 years.
I have no experience in woodworking expect for a single project I made a couple of years ago. I made an aquarium hood using a circular saw and a drill. Not bad considering the tools I used and it looked pretty good. I love creating things from scratch and sitting back drinking a beer and saying to myself I made that.

I just recently started getting more interested into woodworking, looking at videos reading blogs and articles. I have learned a lot of things from reading but making the right decision to start was really hard. All reviews for tools are from big companies names and when you look to purchase them, they are quite expensive.

I have found that woodworking like many others hobbies is expensive. Buying everything that you see in video's and reviews is impossible. I worked out getting what you need to start with your first project, then building it up from there.

Getting into woodworking was hard, what table saw, router, fence system, blades, hand tools and etc… to buy. Blogs or info for people starting out is hard to find, you need to read heaps of website and still have no idea at the end.

I hope by posting my experiences in what I did to get to the stages I am should help any new people to woodworking. I hope I can put it into simple terms and explain highs and lows of my journey.

I am also very bad with my hobbies, I start with a bang and never finish anything so I hope that by being part of this community you guys and girls can push me to continue with it.

EQUIPMENT - Table Saw
I finally decided on a budget to spend for a table saw, and after heaps of searching on the web I pick the Carba Tec 10" CTJ-650. It is the cheapest in there range but it was the best in that price range comparing it other table saws brands for that price.


EQUIPMENT - Fence System
As you can see I did not attach the fench system that come with the Carba Tec Table Saw, I purchased an Incra Fence System that is coming in the next couple of days. I will post photos and how I went to install it.

EQUIPMENT - Work Bench
Ok it is not the perfect work bench but this is what was already at the house, I am renting and it is good enough for starting out. I installed the vice onto the bench that was my first woodworking project. My first project involved me to install the vice and make the wooden handle. I wanted to use the wood glue I bought and test my hand skills with the Rasp File I bought. I made the handle from some scrap wood that I stuck together with wood glue and filed it round by hand.

I also made a push rod from wood scrap I had, I will post picture later.
As you can see I don't have many woodworking tools but in my other logs I will explain what I bought, why and what I think about them. I am from Australia so I don't know if you have the same equipment or not but the process of finding the tools should be the same.



Ok this is my first entry to this web site and I hope it is one of the many I hoping to post.
Cheers, Patrizio

Patrizio, we all have to start somewhere and it looks like you are off to a pretty decent start with your shop. Having a table saw and a bench gives you two essential tools for your shop. I am looking forward to seeing your projects and posts.

Well I'm a welder by trade and I started in woodworking exactly a year ago. I love it even more now than i did in the beginning. You can look at my projects to see how far someone with related back rounds (electrician, welder) can progress in a year. "Welcome to Lumberjocks"

Setup

G'day everyone, I really would like to thank everyone that posted a comment on my very first blog. I was really overwhelmed by the response of friendship and good hearted people that offered to help me if I needed it which was displayed on Lumberjocks community. I also wanted thank Svaabeck for helping me get my finger out.

I am sorry it has taken so long to post another entry but I was taken in by woodworking, once I received my Incra gear and had set it up I got sucked into it. I understand now how additive it is, my wife lost me as did Lumberjocks for a good month as I was stuck in my garage enjoying what woodworking is.

Ok by no means my workshop looks anything like what you guys and girls have but it is a start and it is better than nothing and I love it.

This is what I started with…………………



TO WHAT IT IS TO DAY…………….



When my Incra gear arrived after the new year I received heaps of boxes and didn't know where to start. Then I opened the boxes and there were more boxes inside, after I opened those boxes I found hundreds of little bags with screws, nuts, bolts and washers, it was like one of those Russian nested doll, I was thinking it was going to take weeks to setup but I rolled up my sleeves and got stuck into it.

The picture below was only one box of the six that come and most simple one to start with…..



It took longer than it should off because like most man I didn't read the manual…… Stupid boy….
I had to start over again because the incra system did not feel right nor look ok, but once I followed the instruction as required bingo!.... it worked like a charm. All I can say is I am really happy that I spend the money to buy this system it is well worth the money you have to pay extra but you can really start making stuff straight away without much effort and the ease it is to quickly setup things and repeat it again even if you have moved all your setup.



Setting up my Incra was a good learning curve into woodworking which was to slow down and take it easy and take your time to think things through before you make simple mistakes. One good reason I like woodworking is it makes you take a few steps back to the normal hustle and bustle of life we live in to a world of peace and tranquil. I am still trying to figure out if it because of woodworking or because I was away from the wife and in my garage?? Just kidding…. my wife it the best.

Ok this was my setup and since then I have completed one project that the wife wanted me to make asap and in the middle of another bigger project that again my wife wanted. They will be coming up soon…
Thank you for reading this and I hope you enjoyed and learned from this thanks again.

G'day everyone, I really would like to thank everyone that posted a comment on my very first blog. I was really overwhelmed by the response of friendship and good hearted people that offered to help me if I needed it which was displayed on Lumberjocks community. I also wanted thank Svaabeck for helping me get my finger out.

Requiem, this is a nice addition to your shop. I can well understand why you have been "lost" in the shop. I would be excited too if I had a set-up like this to put together. And, of course, now that you have it together it is time to get back to the projects that your wife has "commissioned". She sounds a lot like mine. My wfie thinks it is her mission in life to find things to keep me busy. :)
