Hi Zeeshan, welcome to the forum. this is an ideal place for you to get advice and inspiration. Why not tell us a little about what you have done and perhaps one of the members near you can get in touch

Thank you for your time, I'm almost half way through my traineeship and I've learnt quite a few housing joints/wood joints. This year is solely on using hand tools and to use chisel control, my chisel control is decent but I've still got a long way to go, I've recently started to use hand planes and I've started to make mortise and tennon joints, I think my main area of improvement would be to practise more mortise and tenons, and I'm looking to go onto year 2 and look at different roofing joints and banister joints and how far each pillar for the banister has to be from another.
I'd say the best joint that I know how to make would be the dovetail.

Hi Zeeshan, Good luck with your training you have a very good attitude which will take you far. With that positive attitude and a good work ethic, you will find an apprenticeship. You will find some very skilled people on here who will be happy to help and give you advice. Do you have a type of work that you especially enjoy?
Set yourself challenges, things you know you can improve, then keep trying. When you have anything you see is not as good as you want, ask for advice here, You will always get help.

Thank you and I will set myself more challenges and to be honest I want to go into all aspects of wood working and learn about them... And to me I like designing furniture and wood carving... And that's the main aspect of wood working I would ideally go into as a hobby and a profession
