    New guy

    I've loved refinishing for last 6 or 7 years. Always wanted to actually build things off my own, so I'm getting ready to take the leap. My knowledge in this is somewhere between non existent and dangerously stupid, so I'll be asking dumb questions. I'm fully confident I can make a wooden orange crate look good with my finishing knowledge, just don't know how to make a crate. This will be interesting, and frustrating

    Welcome aboard, Tom.

    Ask all the questions you want. We'll sure try to answer them for you.

    Whereabouts are you located? If you edit your profile here to show a location (just general, or as specific as you're comfortable with) you may find that one of us lives near you.

    If you have not purchased a table saw, get some input on what's good for cabinetry type work from some of the guys and gals in here.

    New vs. used, price point, extras to add over time, etc.

    and,

    Welcome aboard
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible

    Howdy Tom.

    I'm sure you've subconciously picked up a lot of details looking at pieces as you re-finished them - that will make the thought process somewhat easier anyway. Looking forward to mutual brian picking, can always use more finishing expertice
