You want to begin woodworking, but you aren’t quite certain how to go about starting. You likely have many questions about how you can get started and what you are going to be doing.
First you need to think by what it’s just you want to be doing. Such as:
-What kinds of projects do you want to do?
-Do you have shop and the space to do that?
-How much money have you got to spend in your new hobby?
-How much time can you devote to the new hobby?
-What are your personal skills?
-What do you really want to get out of woodworking?
Before you set up a store, or even buy tools, you need to figure out what you want to focus on. Are you really looking to take on huge projects for example cupboards and furniture? Or have you been just wanting to stick to matters which are more modest such as picture frames, birdhouses, and woodcarving. The jobs you take on will directly affect the equipment you will need, as well as the workshop space you’ll take up building larger projects.

Woodworking does not take as much time as some think, it’s a hobby that you can have when you’ve a busy life but it doesn’t matter how long it takes you to create something, as long as you’re creating. There’s nothing wrong with that in case it takes you a whole 8 months to complete one end table. It’s all about if you’re having fun with it and you might be loving your new avocation. It is possible to create and furnish your house, or get a part-time income.
