    Hi, I am a newbie to woodworking. Some of the stuff I’ve built is still actually together. I am learning. In my mind (more so than in the shop) I get how the stuff is supposed to go together.

But, the reason that I started the rust hunting in the first place was to build up a good set of hand woodworking tools and ultimately learn some of the hand joinery techniques for myself.
