Website:

My Dad was a carpenter and I did work with him a few days, but didn't really have an interest in home building. However, I did have an interest in building other things with wood. Most of my work was pretty crude, made of 2x4's (ironically) and the like. Later, I made some furniture pieces but they always had shortcomings. I think I lacked the time, patience and knowledge to "get it right."

Now that I'm retired I have become more serious in my woodworking. I have learned one important lesson:

Like billiards, you need to think about your next move before you proceed with the current one. How will the next move be affected by what you are doing now?
