I had three years of woodshop back in high school (85-87). I intentionally failed the class so that I could take woodshop II over again. The teacher hated me by the end of the second year because he thought I wasn't applying myself. Instead of building my own projects to turn in for a grade, I would walk around and help other people. I learned so much more that way, and the knowledge I gained in those classes far surpassed anything I learned in Biology. I probably couldn't tell you three things that I learned in Biology class, but I could recite 100's of tidbits of information from woodshop. It's a real shame they don't offer that class in High School anymore.
For years, I couldn't afford and didn't have the time to do any woodworking, but that all changed a few years ago. I finally have a job that pays well and gives me the time off i need to pursue my passion. I have forgotten a lot of what I learned back in HS, but it is slowly coming back to me.
I look forward to being an active member in this community for years to come and hope I can answer at least a tenth as many questions as I plan on asking!
