Expat Carpentry Project

I've drawn some plans to make a bedframe and a trestle table. It took me a while to find the tools I need and I still have to find a drill bit that I need but a tool merchant on Texas Street said he'd get me some.

I've got a decent stock of cheap pine lumber and a few basic tools (the minimum tools required.) In a couple of weeks it should be mostly done.

The pictures of tools and joints I drew really caught the attention of the guy I speak to at the lumber shop. Not because they're so great, but I think he thought I was crazy at first. Now he knows that I'm crazy but that I can also build furniture...
