    After a lot of saving, scrounging and refurbishing, I finally got a basic set of tools together. My first project was a workbench, and this is what I made for my first real project.

     It’s my first real attempt at woodworking, I learned a lot while making it and already have plans for more. The dove tails are a bit gappy and it could use a good sanding and a finish, but for now I’m happy to call it finished.

    Thank you Sides, I’m about half way through a small napkin holder right now, then I think I’ll try some simple side tables.

    Very nice

    Looks great!  As someone who is also just beginning I hope my first attempts come out that good.

    I just got a good chuckle! I started going through the topics at the top of the forum – the napkin holder was the first one. Your comment asked for ideas for your next project – so being the helpful sort I am, suggested a Shaker candle box – the very same type of box you made! That cracks me up. It looks good! Keep it up.
