A few things learned

Recommended Posts

Things my first build has taught me (so far). . .

1. S-L-O-W D-O-W-N !

2. You need templates.

3. Short cuts will actually cost more in the long run (time and money).

4. Routers and saws won't do anything you don't let them do (if you screw up, it's your fault).

5. There is no substitute for having the right tools.

6. Sand until you are sick of sanding, then sand some more.

7. A dust mask and/or respirator is not a bad idea.

8. Don't be scared.

9. Spend what money you have where it will do the most good (tools).

10. If you don't know- read first then ask.

* This list is not all inclusive, just all I feel like typing right now.

I've learnt to put a book over the top of my cup of tea when I'm working that way it stays sawdust free and warm B)

Oh and that a girlfriend will moan if you do all the work in the spare bedroom that hasn't got a door on it :D

I don't think that girlfriend/wife will moan if you don't shut the door. I think that she would scream as she chases you down the hallway with what ever tools she can get her hands on. And you will not enjoy it.
