carpenting help/starters guide

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
sorry if this was asked but i didn't see anything under the guides section but given the quality of some of the newer case mod work i would like to learn more about carpenting.

Generally furniture carpenting such as desk and shelving, maybe even chairs if anyone knows of sites which asset with learning that would be great and possibly add it to the sticky.

"Carpentry" is generally the term for work with timber: building houses, boats, doors, windows and so on. "Cabinetmaking" is the term you need to search for, which is more to do with fine woodworking.

Also you can check things like Wood magazine (or any other woodworking magazine sold wherever you find them) for hints, tips, and other general information.

Mostly how I learned is just practice. Each thing I make I learn a little more and it's a bit better than the last.

Best advice, take up a woodshop class at the local community college. I took 2 years worth and I know everything I'll need to ever know if I wanted to build some nice stuff on my own.
