Want to get started with power tools and building things for your home but have no clue where to start? Let me help! Here’s a quick briefing on how to use a miter saw (and what a miter saw even is!)Would you believe that, while I’ve been writing this blog for over 6 years now and have taken on countless DIY projects, I’ve never built anything on my own? I’m relatively familiar and comfortable with most power tools, I know how to operate them, and I am not scared to use them. However, I have no idea how to actually make anything with them. I’m not one of those people that can pop into the workshop for a few hours and end up with something to show for it – I just stand there uselessly staring at everything and wondering where to start. But no longer. One of my goals for this year was to learn a new skill, and I’ve officially decided that I”m going to learn how to do some basic woodworking. I don’t want to do anything crazy, but it’s high time I learned my way around the workshop and get comfortable with building a few different things. And, guess what? I’m taking you along for the ride – with an entire series on power tools for beginners!
