I wouldn't say I'm experienced by any means, but I've worked with those that are very skilled. Maybe we can bounce resources off each other.

What are you looking to do?

Thanks so much for the message and apologies for the belated reply, I'm struggling with some stuff at the moment. To answer your question as to what I intend to do, I'm an artist and I love doing carved wood sculptures as well as more traditional wood working like boxes and such. I have so many questions and I look forward to talking to you more in the future.

If you want to mass produce boxes with high quality dovetail joints, take a look at the rockler dovetail jig and get yourself a good router. I like the makita but it's up to you.

I would also invest in a decent planer so you can buy cheaper wood cuts and size them to your needs. If you can afford it buy a planer jointer so you can do both.

I would also buy a small air compressor and a micro nailer if you're doing smaller projects. If you're doing casings or furniture I'd get a Brad nailer.

Spring tools makes some awesome nail setters that prevent you from making divot into the wood when trying to set a nail flush.

Also, a dremil may make your artistry go quicker. I would also recommend either joining a local wood working club or picking up a side job on the weekends with a finished carpenter as a helper. Those fuckers know what they're doing and they're always pushing their limits. They'll also teach you a whole new understanding on minute details and how those details effect the overall project.

show the work I have done

Please do.

Also how about a list of tools you have so far and what sort of work area you have.

What is the next thing you'd like to work on?
