  1. Look for online catalogs for U-Line or Hubert. Both are major suppliers of retail fixtures.
  2. I built Norms. I think I still have the plans if you would like them.
  3. Keep the crotch. What would you think about cutting the other side square to match the other? nice slab!
  4. Half of my projects start out the way you describe. slow down, take your time with each step. practice EVERTHING first, whether it's clamping, cutting, whatever. I have been there, and I swear that when you complete one task well, it gets better as you move through the project. Hang in there.
  5. THANK YOU for sharing this build.
  6. Welcome! Since you mentioned following plans, I would recommend any of the NYW plans. The accompanying videos are now hosted on the NYW site. Good Luck with your first project. Post some pics of the process.
  7. Beautiful shop. I could live in there!
  8. +1 for the Osbourne EB3. Love mine.
  9. Welcome to the forum. For what it's worth, I think the Shaker table is a good first project. I built 2 for night stands and love them.
  10. Beautiful work. I really like the wine shelf.
  11. No clue either, but I'm inclined to agree withTpt as it looks like the side opposite to the sharpened edge has been struck with a hammer during its life.

    That's quarter sawn white oak. Do a google search for finishing quarter sawn white oak. There a quite a few ways to "pop the grain", including an excellent one by our host on the Wood Whisperer site.
