I first dabbled with some raw wood in the early 1980s. My complete lack of success prompted me to give that up for a while. Then, around 1990, I started scroll-sawing small pieces for a local tole painter. This I was good at, and it started me on my way. After several geographic moves and 3 different dedicated workshops, I put my tools into long-term storage and moved to Germany for 4 years.

After a decade-long hiatus from woodworking; I started doing some crude projects and it felt good. Then I was run down by a truck. As I recover, I've started doing some more woodworking in a temporary workshop in the basement.

My injuries slow me down a lot, and I am mostly using hand tools, but it does feel good to be in the shop.

-- If I knew then what I know now, I'd have made a completely different set of mistakes.
