So at 'She Shed' (the offshoot of the Men's Shed movement in Australia) as part of our induction we are being instructed on the use of all the machines properly. As such, we are making an 'apprentice piece'.
A small chopping board with a hole, angle, inlay and biscuit join. You start from a rough piece of wood and progress machine by machine. So far I've used the joiner, thicknesser, dropsaw, tablesaw, drill press, bandsaw, router...and some chisels. Need to revisit the tablesaw, that thing is a bit intimidating.
The teacher is really good, a recurring theme, in between the excellent coaching, seems to be to tell you all the ways the tools and machines can maim you or kill you, ha, love it.
My piece is sitting under a table out of the way with clamps on the inlay at the moment. I'm having a blast.
