Blender Mirror Modifier Beginner Tutorial

I answer a Blender request here for using the mirror modifier. This is a tutorial for beginners in which I show how to create simple symmetrical objects.

    Hello, I am having a couple of issues here.
    1-shift W does actually a Bend Angle for me, and not a mirroring.
    2-after applying a mirror modifier to the half of my mesh (after having wiped half of the vertexes on the other side), the mirrored object does not apply directly opposite the current selection but randomly places itself around my 3d view port on various axis (I tried to solve this by selecting various axis or ctrl+A to rotate the item to the plane but nothing).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.
