Played with scrap wood when in grade school, then took two good shop classes in high school. I got into the electrical apprenticeship, and that consumed my time till we got married, bought kitchen cabinets, and after installing those myself, and looking at them, I realized with some tools and machines, I can build the bathroom myself. I have moved on to tv cabinets, computer desk, many small to medium projects for us and the kids. With all the kids out of college, I found enough spare money to buy mostly used tools and build a shop in the garage. Now many more projects for the wife and children remain before I get too old. Lots to do! A friend said he didn't work wood because it wasn't accurate enough for him. He preferred machine work. My work may not be perfect, but wood sure looks a lot better sitting in the house .
