Retired for six years from the electronics industry. Taking up woodworking at this late stage of life, having been encouraged by watching all of the episodes of the Router Workshop, and seeing all the neat things that could be done. Some of these episodes I have watched many times in the past, and miss them. One of the big beneifts for me was learning techniques that can be applied to other projects. If I were to pick one tip, it would be if you are to make more than one part, find a way to make a pattern, or template to use over and over. My first project which I have committed to, will require this approach.
