A lot of people who I talk to always seem to get confused between the woodworking finger joint and the dovetail joint - these are by no means the same. Dovetails always tend to have much less fingers than the woodworking finger joint and this has obvious dis-advantages. Dovetail joints are also a lot more difficult to produce than finger joints, I find finger joints a more easier alternative to dovetails.
After you have read several books, or taken a course, then youre finally ready to pick up some wood and start a project of your own. However, its probably best to leave the deburring equipment alone until you have gained some experience grinding down wood imperfections by hand. This will give you time to understand the proper technique for achieving a smooth surface, and it will help you troubleshoot any problems that arise when youre finally ready to use a machine. In fact, you will find that there are many instances where a large machine is impractical, regardless of how much experience you have using one.
Back in 7th grade, it was a coat rack you started with. Nothing fancy, just made with some dowels and a shaped piece of wood to sink them into. After it was all glued, sanded and stained, it looked pretty good. After that it was a napkin holder that actually turned out good enough that your Mom put it out on the table at Thanksgiving and Christmas, and made sure to tell all the relatives who made it. (“Awww Mom!”)
