Some people try to use drywall or carpenter squares for this, but both can prove to be inaccurate or difficult to manage. Go to a local art shop for a drafting square. They are easier to work with and more accurate.

Be sure that you are fully aware of the steps you need to take to complete your project before you begin. You don't want to glance at the instructions once then realize later that you've made an error. Make sure you read the directions completely to ensure that everything is right.

Woodworking is great for you, and now is the time to begin. Do not get intimidated, just focus on using this advice. You won't be an expert overnight, but that is okay. Use your innate creativity and desire to improve. Most of all, have fun.
