If you were completely new to woodworking - all your prior experience was
installing chair rails in a den and building a workbench - what type of wood
would you use to build sewing machine furniture? I'm planning to build
something similar to a corner computer desk with side extensions to
accommodate 3 sewing machines.
Something like this: http://store.yahoo.com/plansnow/compdesk1.html
The tools I'll be using are a 7 1/4" electric circular saw, and another one
5 1/2" battery operated. Also a scroll saw, two drills, and a finishing
sander. Of course I have all the other essentials, such as hammers, levels,
Considering the tools that I have, and especially my very limited
experience, I'm concerned about wasting good wood.
On the other hand, it could turn out to be pretty good and then I would be
sorry not to have used better wood.
What would be a middle ground?
I would greatly appreciate some feedback.
