Re: How long before offcuts

One view of off cuts could be that they are the result of the made thing coming first i.e. you buy the wood to make the thing. So you don't have off cuts if you turn it around wood first and ask what thing can I make with this bit of wood. Or am I pissed again? Off to Cornwall tomorrow for another ...

No. It was just a bulk standard Axminster floor standing pillar drill, can't remember the number, but it worked well for years and was plenty accurate for woodworking.

Jeff, just because you're working in your garage doesn't mean you should underprice. In the future you may have a larger workshop and paying rent, you won't then be able to suddenly double your rates. Don't forget to factor in the cost of materials, everything from sandpaper(surprisingly expensive) ...

Re: new to woodwork and the site, be kind.

Hi Dean, yes MDF is a good place to start, but you should know that when you start using proper wood it will react differently to your power tools and any finish you will put on it, so you will effectively have a whole new learning curve.

Good luck, have fun and play safe.
