    That's one of those questions that's hard to answer. You might consider yourself a beginner and others would consider you an expert. When you feel you have the confidence to move up in difficulty, you have advanced to the intermediate or advanced level. You're question asks about woodworking which covers a broad range. Some people are experts with a scrollsaw and beginners on a lathe and vice versa. Probably the easiest defination would be that if people want to buy your projects, you are no longer a beginner.
    Below are pictures of the first and second projects my boss did on my scrollsaw. She does have her Masters degree in Art, but had never used a scrollsaw before. I had her do the first lesson in The Scrollsaw Workbook and she went to these: The cross was her first. I couldn't rotate it and resize it without losing the quality.

    There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

      your right woodworking does cover alot more range of things than I was thinking lol . Well I havent sold anything as of yet but I havent really tried to either,still trying to figure out the pricing, but I have moved a few steps up in doing the more difficult projects . both of those are very nice work and very well done .


      Thank you for the help

            I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

            My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

            None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

            What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
            The bags seem easier on the surface.
            But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

            Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.
