I had the opportunity to write an article for one of my favorite woodworkers Jay Bates over at Jay's Custom Creations about what I learned during my first real woodworking project which was a play table for my kids. I got the plans from a DIYer Ana White (ana-white.com). She has TONS of free plans and instructions.
So please head over to the Jay's site to check out the article to see how I built the table and chairs below as well as some great newbies woodworking learnings.
