I've been woodworking since building that first tree house with a buddy, we were probably around 8-9. I gained a real appreciation for wood in high school wood shop class. I made a few pieces of furniture back in the 80's, then woodworking was kind of put on hold while my wife and I raised two wonderful daughters. We built a house in 02.........well OK, building a house, finished the basement in 2009. Now the girls are 19 & 21 (time really does fly) and I am enjoying woodworking again!
