I have been addicted to the wonderful world of woodworking for 2 years now. It all started when my wife, Lynn, and I built our first home and I decided to build the deck myself. I built it from Western Red Cedar and did the design and built the entire project on my own. This got my feet wet and started my obsession. I had to buy some tools to make this project happen, and it blossomed from there. At first, I was borrowing tools, but necessity pushed me into ownership. Construction type projects moved to more detailed woodworking and craftmanship. Finding the balance between large scale projects and intricate, detailed projects was (is) an interesting journey. I still enjoy the joy and challenge of switching from a construction, brute force, muscle and sweat, Mike Holmes, type project, to a small, delicate, careful, every sandpaper stroke counts, type of project. I always have one or the other on the go, and therefore can decide which one to tackle, depending on my mood and how my day went.
We all know how this works...the intricate, detailed work takes 80% of the time, but physically accounts for 20% of the finished volume of work. Yet, it is that detailed work that makes all the difference in the end.
It's all in the details.
Life (including woodworking) is a journey...enjoy the ride!
