2. Writers block? Yes it can happen to designers as well. If you run out of ideas for your next woodworking project there are some things that you can do to get the creative juices flowing again. Window shopping anyone? Take a stroll to some of your favorite furniture or antique stores, walk around and look at some designs until you see something that jumps out at you that you would like to build. If that does not work you can always pay a visit to your favorite do it yourself store, they always have plenty of books and magazines on some very nice do it yourself projects.
When you transform your router in to a v-groove router by using the bit you need, which should you use? Carbide (tungsten carbide) tipped bits are manufactured of an extremely hard material that remains sharp for a longer period of time than steel bits, and are heat resistant.

The benefit of having woodwork designs cannot be underestimated. Regardless of whether you are an expert woodworker or beginning to learn the trade, having your own designs is invaluable and will be the reason why your project fails or succeeds. Every woodworker requires detailed and clear designs that they can use to learn all the steps and materials required for the woodworking task. When you have a specific design, you have a clear idea of what the final outcome of the task will be and this allows you to determine the duration of the task, in addition to the tools needed and the price of the final product, if you intend to sell it.
Buy yourself a large sketchpad and begin to scribble away. The good news is that you do not have to be good at art or technical drawing to come up with your own designs. Of course, if you are naturally creative, this could be the ideal choice for you. However, it is perhaps not suitable for a complete novice woodworker.
The Right Kind of Tools – There are a few tools that every woodworker should have in his inventory; here is a list of them:
