My Dad was a carpenter and I did work with him a few days, but didn't really have an interest in home building. However, I did have an interest in building other things with wood. Most of my work was pretty crude, made of 2x4's (ironically) and the like. Later, I made some furniture pieces but they always had shortcomings. I think I lacked the time, patience and knowledge to "get it right."

Now that I'm retired I have become much more serious in my woodworking and I have learned one important lesson:

You need to think about your next move before you proceed with the current one. A mistake now will only compound going forward.

Jerry, I have thoroughly enjoyed looking at your outstanding projects. You seem to be very humble about your ability, but let me say your the best craftsmen/artist on Lumberjocks. You are a true all around master woodworker. There doesn’t seem to be any thing you can’t design and do a beautiful job of building. Thank you so much for sharing and inspiring to likes of me.
