I first dabbled with some raw wood in the early 1980s. My complete lack of success prompted me to give that up for a while. Then, around 1990, I started scroll-sawing small pieces for a local tole painter. This I was good at, and it started me on my way. After several geographic moves and 3 different dedicated workshops, I moved to Germany for 4 years. While there, my tools went into long-term storage. Upon moving back to Canada, I was living about 1400 km (8-900 miles) from my tools with no place for a shop and not sure about how long I would be staying.

Years later and I'm finally living somewhere where I will be staying, so I will be building a workshop. After a decade-long hiatus from woodworking; I started doing some crude projects, and it felt good. I started to set up a temporary workshop in the basement when I was run down by a truck. As I recover, I've started doing some more woodworking. My injuries slow me down a lot, and I am mostly using hand tools, but it does feel good to be in the shop.
