I am new to the forum and pretty new to woodworking in general. I am getting ready to purchase my first Guild project, and wondered what recommendations you all had for a good first project. I've read through some previous post, but they were older and there are now new projects available.
I know that the Shaker Table is one that is recommended regularly as a good first project. I have also seen the Wall-hanging Cabinet recommended several times. My goal is to get a project that will teach me as many techniques as possible. Even if I'm not ready to tackle the project, I think I can learn a lot by watching the videos and having them as a resource.
From the two mentioned above, I feel that I would get better use out of the cabinet, but is there another project that would teach the same techniques and possibly more? I would really like to build the Adirondack Chair and the G&G Blanket chest someday, but based on what I've read these don't teach as many of the fundamental techniques as other projects.
Your advice is greatly appreciated. I'm really looking forward to joining the guild.
