Leaves absolutely no questions for the woodworker to answer
Do your homework on companies and individuals offering woodworking plans. Look at some of their designs and ask to see a list of customers who have used and commented on their plans. When first beginning with woodworking designs, you need to have a certain amount of trust in what design woodwork instructors are showing and telling you.
Getting the equipment – This is where most people start to fret. Woodworking equipment is really costly ranging from manual handheld to industrial grade. As with anything else you can look at some good bargains for motorized equipment such as table and circular saws. Look up Rockler and Woodcraft, these carry good quality and competitively priced equipment for almost any woodworking project conceivable. If you want still better bargains then check out Amazon.com and eBay.com, you can find practically any equipment on these sites.
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.
Mind you this is not for everyone, the traditional method is still preferred by most, detailed plans and so forth so for those who are not game enough to build a pallet shed check out my resource box now
The objective is to open the pores to restore the aroma that is waiting to be let loose. There are a couple of ways you can do this. One method is to very lightly sand the surface using a fine 200 grit sandpaper on a sanding block. What this will do is the sandpaper will penetrate the pores and will open up pockets in the wood where the precious cedar oil is contained. Be very careful with the sanding though as you don’t want to end up with scratch marks. This is avoidable if you sand in the same direction as the grain. You will find that it’s not going to take much sanding before you smell the aroma of the cedar once again.
