I got a little cordless drill and I'm impressed with how easy it is to
make shelves, racks, and perhaps tables as long as I use metal L-shaped
brackets, and perhaps plates or if needed hinges too. One thing that
had held me up from doing woodwork so far was learning all the wood
joints, such as mortise and tenon and et cetera, which I kept putting
off, but now I'm overcome with the urge to do all sorts of stuff given
how simple it is with metal joints.
Another thing I like about metal joints for wood is that I can unscrew
them later on and reassemble what I'd built elsewhere perhaps without
the damage that would've occured from joinery or nails. If the 3mm
screw no longer works I can use 3.5, 4 and 5. I can also reuse the wood
with minimal damage to it.
What do you guys think? Am I missing out on anything?
