My(Paul) Dad has the woodworking gene but alas I did not receive it. However this does not keep me from enjoying good quality work. I mostly love cool wood gadgets like wood puzzles and puzzle boxes such as are found at:
I have a couple of the puzzles, (one that my Dad for made me:) I am still looking for the ideal puzzle box to invest in. I will no doubt buy one one day, I know the idea of buying something like this to most of you woodworkers would be considered a sin, but for us that do not have the gene, we are the ones that end up buying the projects that you real woodworkers create. I respect your skill greatly.
