If you discover that you are barking up the My Shed Plans Review wrong tree, so to speak, don't quit, just try something new. If you become skillful in one section of woodcraft, that does not mean that you will do well in all kinds of woodworking. Using myself as an example, I realized early on that while I was OK using hand tools, I lacked the skill of an artist. I tried woodturning on the lathe and had a similar outcome.
However, when I began to design and construct furniture, using machines, my projects started to go so well that I went into business doing that. In no time at all, I had clients at the door and up to seven woodworkers working hard to manufacture my furniture designs and fill the orders that were accumulating. Speaking of talent, I hired two, different kinds of employees. those who built the furniture and those who sanded it smooth in order to prepare it for finishing. Everyone had their own range of knowledge and everyone who worked for me was happy to be in their own area of skill.
That's only my experience. It will most likely be quite different for you. Let's look at the big decision you will need to make immediately between carpentry and fine woodworking. Make no mistake about it; I have great respect for both kinds of skills. I see them as equally challenging but in different ways. To me, carpentry is the art of building structures like houses, decks, sheds and gazebos. Materials include construction-grade wood, usually fir, plywood, concrete, drywall and the like.
There are carpenters who build forms for foundations, framers who construct walls and roofs out of studs and rafters, drywall installers, and finish carpenters whose skills are like those of a fine woodworker but not exactly the same. There is forever the need to get the work completed on time and within the budget but there is also the absolute necessity for professional-quality work.
