Very briefly, I am new to using wood since I worked in the steel industry and that consisted of maintenance work, repair, replace, construction using what else but steel. The nice thing about that was if you cut it short, you could weld it back together. I posses the standard allotment of hand and power tools,with a router purchased about 40 years back, but I just recently used it to replace the bottom section of a wooden sliding patio door that had rotted away due to moisture. I managed to make the groove for the glass and the fancy step down to the main piece of wood. It fit together with the use of a rubber mallet, and was taken apart for glueing. I felt very proud about that piece of work. Anyway that's all for now.
