« Part 13: Tenons Part 14 of Learning Curve series Part 15: 6 months in and counting »

During my short time at woodworking I’ve been asked about how I got into it and whether my Dad did any woodworking. Sadly, there was no direct woodworking mentors in my family.

One of my other little passions is genealogy and I have now found where my woodworking interests come from!

My great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfather, Ludwig Horning, was a carpenter!!! He was born in 1708 in Germany and arrived in Skippack Township Pennsylvania at age 20. He took his Oath of Allegiance on Sept. 25, 1740.

In his will, he stated: 1 do further give and bequeath to my son John my clock, and case, windmill, cutting box all my carpenter tools, cross cut and hand saw and drawing knife.

And so there you have. I have sawdust in them thar veins!! :)

From those things that were made for good, someone will always think of a way to use it for Bad.
