From my point of view there are 6 things that I think are essential to know for how to start woodworking

1) you have to setup simple woodwork space.

2) Learn How to Read a Tape Measure.

3) Understanding Actual vs. Nominal Sizes in Lumber

4) Always use straight wood boards.

5) Basic tool you can use in your woodworking space.

6) Sand you wood

Just keep in mind these point You may just fall in love with woodworking and become hooked like me smiley

Thread: Power and heating

Hi, while having an extension built I'm getting the builder to put up a 3.4m x 2.85m internal dimensions, thermalite, block wall workshop. The biggest I can fit in the garden. I want to take my low skill DIY woodworking to a higher level (to make guitars initially) and the workshop is the start. I'll probably want to take on other interesting projects for the house. One I've already thought of is a bespoke double door frame so will need to consider other power tools.

I've got guitar making books which cover the tools required but can someone give me an idea of a "sensible" figure for power requirement so that I can tell the builder what I need so he'll instruct his electrician. A bit of spare capacity would seem sensible.

Am I looking at a sub CB board?

Also suggestions for heating?

I hate the idea of electric heating because of the expense, but to get gas to the building 30m away from the house? Gas bottles an option? Solar panels?

Any advice for this novice.

I've also messaged regarding this subject to a couple of private messages in my inbox so thanks to Colin & Paul.

Consider this option.

Thread: Removing rust from hand tools

Hello All. I need to remove rust from several tools (yes, my workshop lets in draught, but that's another task). I've looked at a solution called Evapo-Rust - 5L, £40.00. Does any one have any alternative methods of removing / eliminating rust from metal hand tools? Many thanks.

Try Cola, it workswink
