I've built stuff before, a dining room table, a crib (that 4 of our kids slept in), a couch, a bunch of shelves, a 20'x45' deck, etc. But that was mainly 25 or 30 years ago, and back in the days when the going style was called "country", so fine craftsmanship wasn't essential. And I've done lots of wood work over the years around the house, mainly because I've never wanted to pay someone for something I can do myself (even if it isn't as professional looking a job).

But I'm not working any more (due to a disability, but I'm looking at it as early retirement). So I'm wanting to finally have a chance to become a true woodworker. I don't think I'll really have a chance to do much toward that goal until we can downsize, because I don't have room for the tools I already have, much less any kind of work-in-process area. (One of our requirements for a new house is a place for me to set up as a workshop.) Also, due to circumstances beyond my control, plus limitations of my disability, I can really only work in the shop 3 hours or less each day, 3 or 4 days a week.

But I'm really looking forward to it, and I'm doing a lot of research. This site seems to be the one I keep coming back to, to do woodworking vicariously.
