I started woodworking at an apprinticeship in Jefferson Iowa. R.V.P.1875 is a historical woodworking museum. There we only were alowed to use hand tools. It is a two year apprinticeship and over that time i tried power tools at home but never got the feel for them. so that's why I like to use only hand tools while working in my shop.
I only have those 2 1/2 years under my belt and I have alot more to learn, but that's the fun in woodworking you can never know enough.
