Tips & Tricks
1. Safety first: Always wear gloves and safety glasses when using power tools as wood-working can be dangerous if you’re not careful.
2. Have the right tools: Make sure to have the correct tools when attempting a woodworking project. Having the right saws and drills will help you finish your project faster and with better results.
3. Do some research: Before taking on any new project, take the time to do some research into what materials, supplies, and tools you’ll need.
4. Measure twice, cut once: Take the extra time to measure twice before cutting your materials for accuracy. This will save you from needing to start over if a mistake is made in measurement or cutting technique.
5. Finish it off: Once your project is complete make sure to give it a good sanding job and sealant or stain in order for it to look its best and last longer!

By having this pre-planning and organization, Scott ensures that his workflow runs smoothly and efficiently throughout the project. He has established a process for himself that is comfortable, efficient, and can help him with quality control.
For example, Scott makes sure to double check all of his measurements before cutting anything to ensure accuracy. He also takes time to inspect his supplies for knots or any other imperfections that could affect the final product’s integrity. In addition, every step of his technique is refined which allows him to produce high quality results within reasonable timescales, which explains why he charges $125 an hour for his services. Overall, Scott’s approach to woodworking is one that incorporates efficiency while still allowing himself to focus on producing quality results and minimizing waste.
