You can see pictures from the early years and learn more on my About Me page. This is one of my first projects from way back when.
If you’re new to owning power tools, and can only make one purchase, I suggest a Jigsaw. If you think you’re going to want to make larger projects, go for the Sliding compound miter saw and have the big box store cut your larger sheet goods for you.
This weeks guest was Jeanie Emmert from Create and Babble. Jeanie talks about building a Farmhouse Table that she uses in her fabulous craft room, and a sweet armoire that she built for her granddaughter. Jeanie shares a story about her first experience with a saw, and how she overcame her fear of power tools.
Jeanie has something new she’s working on, and it’s not a building project. Listen to this weeks episode to hear all about Jeanie’s new ebook that will be out this Fall.
Jeanie asked me about my most recent power tool purchase . . .
While talking to Jeanie about headboards, I mentioned how it took me a year to work on this Chalkboard Headboard
