I am a retired university professor in the Philippines. In a pre-retirement seminar I attended one recommendation, among others, is to take up a hobby. One that engages your mind and hands and you enjoy doing. My father also enjoyed wood working. He also was a university professor. During his time power tools were beyond reach and rare. So I just had to learn in the old craftsman's way. It was fun.
When I finished college, I slowly acquired hand and power tools. I don't consider myself well versed with the trade yet as most of you are. My aim is to attain that proficiency. It may take a lifetime but the whole process of trying and achieving is in itself deeply rewarding.
I'll tell you more as I go along.
