I agree with what you said MrWoody. I have often said that we learn more from our mistakes than from our successes. If we don’t try then obviously we do not make mistakes but this “safe route” does not let us grow and expand our abilities either. That is the real goal in not only woodworking, but in life in general.

It is difficult to try something new because of our level of discomfort. But with practice comes improvement and ultimately success, however we define it for ourselves.

So many tools, so many new techniques and discliplines- After seeing the post that you and others have put out I want to try them all.
