My name is Amanda Taylor and I live in Lubbock, Texas. I have been a big fan of your blog ever since I stumbled upon it via pinterest. I love all of the projects that you do (even though you’re hurt at this time and can’t create). My story is somewhat like yours, except that I was let go from an electric company. Ever since being fired, it’s been hard to find employment; I even have a Bachelor’s Degree wasting away. I see the things that you make and think to myself that I can do that too. You inspire me, and I want to create just like you. BUT I have no clue where to get started, how to use a saw, or any other machine for that matter lol. Would you be willing to send me a list of machines that you use, and any other advice to get started?
Thanks ahead of time,
Dremel Trio as seen in the post Chalkboard Speech Bubbles. It cuts, it sands, it’s awesome!
The Dremel Multi-max does a great job with flush cutting
In my post Cupboard with Repurposed Windows you can see the cupboard is sitting on a furniture dolly. This flat dolly allows me to move all these pieces by myself. I have 3 because sometimes it’s easier to leave a big piece on it when I’m moving it frequently, so I have a couple of spares. If you work alone a lot, you must get a couple of these!
