I've always liked working with wood and have built many things starting with a flimsy soap box derby at grade school age, a chicken coop at high school age, various book shelves at young adulthood, and a toy box that endured through my son's rearing age through his adulthood and is now being used by my grandson who is now 8 years old. That toy box is over 30 years old and just as functional as it was when I first finished it. Nothing has been done to it to keep in its present condition. I was totally surprised when my grandson pointed it out to me, proudly mentioning that it was his dad's toy box and now his, and claiming that he knew that I had built it.
Now after retiring from the Army after 24 years of service and from a second career of government contracting work, I'm more or less, looking to wood working to keep me occupied while at home and not on the river attempting to lure a salmon or steelhead with a fly I've tied. At 60 years of age and appreciative that I am able to keep an active lifestyle, I'm looking forward to converting the garage to a part-time wood shop. That will give me an excuse to finally clear it out of all the items I've stored in there for almost a decade. The lady of the house is skeptical but I'm being optimistic. I'm looking forward to exchanging ideas, tips, tricks, and techniques with members of LJ's and the camaraderie it brings.
