One of my favorite woodworkiing sites is ana-white.com

I just wish I could actually make something, I don't have a table saw which makes it very difficult.

lack tools is tough. I have noticed there are more places that rent out tools/space now.

I have no idea where to start with woodworking but have always wanted to have a go. Can you recommend any sites for beginners, Doggie?

that's a good question. a library may be a better place to start I think tons of woodworking books from start to finish. Plus it ins info that does not age. not sure on sites as I was doing it before the internet. I know here in Portland there are places you can rent space/tools so it is cheap to try it out and see if you like it. That way you don't have to invest in tools till you see what it is about. community college is a good way too to start with. here is the first site I found http://sawdustmaking.com/

Thank you! I'm going to make some time over the next couple of months for research. Didn't realise that it's possible to rent workshop space. It would be so cool to be able to build simple furniture, fitted shelves etc. The ideas on Ana White's site are inspiring but way beyond my level of expertise (which is zero, ATM).

Love that sign, BTW :-)

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.

      I have a chance to undergo esketamine treatment for depression.  If any FJers have any thoughts, I’d appreciate them.
