This is the place where it all happens!! The core of MY woodworking life... Time moves a little differently here! Those couple of minutes that you came out here to spend have suddenly turned into several hours?? Some of the practices seen here need to be done with care and attention... The tools are sharp and the moving parts... move at a very high rate of speed. If you are unsure about the use of these items, it would probably be best if you continue to just watch... as you could get hurt...but by seeing how other people use the tools, you might find a boost in your own confidence level as well as the gaining of some kind of knowledge.
