I come from a long line of woodworkers on both sides of my family. The blocks I played with as a small kid were from the scrap box in my grandfather's cabinet shop. My brothers and I were born with sawdust in our veins.....
I enjoy many aspects of woodworking, with a strong leaning toward the traditional (hand and foot) methods. The old ways are pretty darned quick and efficient. I can often get a molding cut with a few swipes of a hand plane before my oldest brother can get his router set out and set up..... Besides which, there is a more personal interaction with the wood when using traditional tools that I personally enjoy. That's not to say I don't use power tools when it's most expedient to do so, I just enjoy adding the old ways into the mix when possible.
