I have been woodworking since 14. Mostly self taught, never taken a class, or had shop in school. When i was younger it was all about rushing to finish the project. Now that I am older, I realize that joinery, types of wood, and finish are MORE important than just completing the project. My great grandfather was a ship builder at a Lake Erie yard near Cleveland and, I still use his tools today. My father also did some woodworking and was able to turn out nice pieces with only a few tools. He taught me what I "wanted" to learn. Some was absorded, most was not.
What was not absorbed- I make up for by reading everything I can get my hands on. They say that you learn through experience, so I try to build using diffent techniques, methods, and machines. I'm part of this site to gain knowledge and share ideas.
I turn out between 15-20 projects a year. All of my wood comes from trees that I log and have commercially sawn. My barn is a dedicated drying kiln.
