Do you, or does someone you know, want to get started in woodworking, but you aren’t sure you can do it?
Never fear! The editors at Popular Woodworking magazine have put together this interesting site for those just getting into the craft with a limited set of skills and tools.
First of all, I highly recommend downloading the .PDF of their user’s manual that gives woodworking novices the basics on which tools to buy, instructions on basic joints and how to get accuracy in their projects.
Once familiar with the basics, the magazine’s editors have put together an interesting collection of projects for the beginner to tackle. From simple knick-knack shelves to more ambitious projects, there are plans that can help set the aspiring woodworker on his or her way in short order.
Even if you are not a novice, it doesn’t hurt to pay the site a visit, since Popular Woodworking’s staff has given quite a collection of advice that even some old hands at woodworking could find useful.
