I enjoy woodworking, but I am not very experienced at the trade. My wife loves to bless me with woodworking tools, and I love to try to make something with them worth finishing. I've actually finished 4-6 projects that are in use today (small entertainment center, 2 storage cabinets from oak in my living room, a wood trash container, etc.) and enjoy the relaxation of accomplishing something.

With a wife like you’ve got, you should have great potential. She buys you tools and you make her stuff! Got to love that ;^D
