  • Newbie Project

    Well I jumped in with both feet and gave this woodworking stuff a try. Been playing around for a couple of months or so but I figured I better get something completed before the wife started questioning my shop expenses. I found this pattern in a magizine last month, thought it would be worth a try.

    Please let me know what you think. The more positive feedback the more I can impress the wife, the more toys are I buy for the shop.

    Very good work Dallas -- now you need to get a compound miter saw for frames and a sander and a router and a planer -- just keep up the good work and your wife will have a lot of new pretties that you made her with love in every cut -- lol -Hope this helps -- any tools I forgot just add them in yourself -- oh yea and a drill press and a air compressor too

      Gosh, Dallas - that looks pretty good to me. Only thing I can think of to improve it might be a drum sander, gobs of new blades and wood and patterns, new better shop lights (what else was it you wanted justified?) Yep! That too!!

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

              I cannot even fathom posting my first project I ever did, though I still keep it around just to remind myself of where I was.

              Your work looks pretty good Dallas, but you might be able to do better if it weren't so dusty in your shop, perhaps your wife will see to it that you get a good dust collection system.

                New toys sometimes become tools we can use, and other times they simply are tools toward expanding our horizons and being there when an idea pops into our heads. Let us know what you try the Ortur on and how it does. I'm sincerely curious. Also....why did you choose Amazon vs the other vendors...

                It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

                Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

                I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
                on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...
