Posted this at your site and thought I’d share it here. It brought back fond memories of my Dad.
My wood working education started 55 yrs. ago with my Dad. He was a cabinetmaker and I got to assist him in his shop and we worked together at a commercial shop. My dad taught about all power and hand tools. He also ingrained in me the use of safety and a respect for the tools we were using. He also taught me to treat people and customers with the same respect and care. He had a great sense of humor as well. I was once working on a very repetitive task. I found a wood screw with no threads on it. Just a smooth shaft and the philips head. I showed him the screw, holding it point up and said” What should I do with this”. He answerred without blinking, ” If it’s point up-use it in the top. Point down-in the base. Point left or right-use it on the sides. Get back to work.” Then he smiled , turned around and went back to his project. It took me a few seconds to get the joke but I got the message. I didn’t have a son but 5 daughters. I figured most of his knowledge would be lost with me. But I’ve recently been teaching 2 son-in laws all that knowledge as they work on their own houses. My 9 yr old grand daughter loves cutting stone on my wet saw. So like the wood and my dad’s caring and patience, the wood working skills will continue. He’s passed on now, I hope he’s as proud of me as I was of him. Thanks for reading this comment.
