I'm 23 years old and am really just starting to try to learn to work with tools and wood. It has always interested me but my family was never really into it. Anyways, I'm going to try my luck on a picnic table soon for my apartments. Before that I was thinking I might make a little miniature table with cutouts for a ketchup bottle and salt and pepper shakers. Anybody have any idea of plans for it and what kind of wood I should use? I'll take any help I can get!
