My intro and the project that got me started...

Post by Jexodus » Tue Oct 15, 2019 11:42 am

Hi everyone. As a new member to the forum, I thought it best to introduce myself. My name is Simon and I live in Australia. I have a background as an electrical tradesman but have never done any real woodwork before.
I recently built my first project which was an Australian flag out of dressed pine (photo below). It has some major flaws, however it's my starting point. I learned a lot from the mistakes I made (including the need to joint boards) which I'm going to use to improve my skills. I have a lot of basic hand tools, but very limited woodworking related tools.
My first question to the gurus in the forum are which are the best investment for your first most useful tools? All I have at the moment is a trim router, a small table router and a cordless drill.
I'm looking forward to learning from you all, and thanks in advance for any help/advice you provide.
