i am counting on mostly this forum to help me with along the way.

Hey VaVroom1 !!
W e l c o m e . . A b o a r d !!​

Just off the top of my head, here are a few things I think you should do...
1. Watch www.TheWoodworkingChannel.com a lot...
2. Watch The Routerworkshop (above & PBS)
3. Watch New Yankee Workshop (DIY & PBS)
4. Visit & soak up information on my website...
. . . http://www.woodworkstuff.net/
5. Concentrate on being able to design & build Jigs, etc. to make each cut / step as easy and accurate as possible for you.
6. Strive to make things ALWAYS square...
7. Better to triple check things before doing...
8. Before making a cut on Table Saw (TS), band saw (BS), etc.
. . . do a pretend cut... including moveing the actual wood through to the end, etc. to make sure there is NOTHING that is going to cause you problems on the way through the operation...
9. Patience.
10. If you are not comfortable making any cut, don't do it... think Jig instead!

Hope this helps...

Enjoy...

thank all for your warm welcome.

up till now my projects have been speaker baffles and box, and amplifier racks for the car. these little projects get me hooked on woodworking. now itching to move on to other projects for the home.
