Now that you’ve found the website you like best, take advantage of what the site has to offer. If they have video tutorials, make sure and look at all of them that might help you with your project. If they offer any computer programs, make sure and download them. After downloading them, look through them to see what they can do and where it might help you. Look through the plans and projects they have available, and decide what you are going to tackle first. (Remember, you’re “starting over”, pick something like that bookcase you were looking at in the store. You can always do something more involved, later on.) Since you took some time, and found a site with great woodworking plans, you know you are off to a good start. Just think, you be sitting in your house, with some annoying neighbor over trying to borrow something, when he notices your new bookcase. He walks over to it and asks: “I haven’t noticed this before, it’s really nice. Where’d you buy it?”
There are two different types of lighting that are important to your success as a woodworker: bright artificial lighting and natural sunlight. A well lit room is the key to producing quality work, especially if youre using power tools or deburring equipment to finish a project. Allowing natural sunlight into the workroom will make it easier to spot any imperfections in the wood that you wouldnt otherwise notice with harsh fluorescent lights. Additionally, good lighting makes it much easier to see the marks you make on the wood when you measure out your individual cuts and angles.
Next is feather board. It keeps the wood against the fence. Springs made from wood are used. Magnets, expansion bars, clamps are used to held them in place. Hold down is also attached to fence with the help of magnets. Sub fence is also available. Miter gauge comes next. From front to back one or two grooves will be running in the table. These are called miter slots and they help in guiding the crosscut sled. Crosscut sled allows catching or holding the work piece at 90 degrees to blade. Tenon jig helps to vertically hold the work piece and the cuts may be done across the end. Tenons are formed here.
