I have always been a car guy and have loved working with tools since I was a kid. As a mechanical engineer I always loved machines and machining. I had occasionally considered the idea of woodworking as a hobby, but I wrestled with my (completely wrong) idea that working with wood would be imprecise and ultimately frustrating.

Around 2009, my wife suggested I take it up, so I gave it a try. I LOVE it now and will never look back.

-- I've learned 10 times more from my mistakes than from my successes.
