  1. CMT. I would buy a combination blade. The shop that sharpens my blades sells CMT blades for a bit less than suggested retail. If these blades are a little too rich for you try an upper end Freud combination blade. I used Freud for years before switching to CMT.
  2. Bought myself a new Grizzly scrollsaw for Christmas. And my wife gave me a Hohner Thunderbird low C harmonica for Christmas.
  3. Joint one edge before ripping and use a feather board to hold your work firmly against the fence.
  4. Good rule of thumb. If it looks right it is right!
  5. I have built many interior doors using Douglas Fir. It’s tough as nails.
  6. How wide is the top? If there is a saw mill or commercial wood shop nearby they usually have a planer that will accept as much as 36” width.For a small fee they may run the top through their planer for you. Otherwise, break out the fore and jack planes.
  7. If there is a WoodCraft store anywhere near you they often times have woodworking classes with some of the best woodworkers in the country teaching the class.
  8. Looks like you are using pine to practice with. Being a soft wood your chisels have to be super sharp. ( sharp enough to shave the hair off the back of your hand. ) Also cut lines could be deeper. All in all though they look better than my first crack at it!
