I grew up surrounded by all manner of woodworking. The majority of my family were carpenters, father included. I really didn't have a choice but to learn how to work with wood, since this was inevitably my first form of employment. I spent six or so years working with my father both on the job site, and in our shop at home where he would build some of the most beautiful furniture I've ever seen(although I'm probably a bit biased). The thing that stood out about him most was his drive for perfection. If it wasn't just right, it was thrown away or reworked. I decided the carpenters life wasn't for me and joined the military, not because I didn't enjoy building houses and woodwork in general, but because I needed more job security. Eight years after I joined the Air Force, I lost my father, and decided that I'd pick up where I left off. Between the military and my family there isn't a terribly large amount of spare time, but I use what little there is for woodworking.

My wife was less than pleased when I decided to begin working with wood again after so many years. After all, the last time I’d done any kind of woodwork, we hadn’t yet met. I could see where she was coming from, since in her mind it w...
