As an electrical contractor I taught many young people my trade. Some stayed with me many years and I got to see them become accomplished journeyman. Now in my 60’s I didn’t think I would teach anymore till yesterday. We met a new couple to the area some time back and I made them several things, we got to be friends and they visit my shop occasionally. I knew he was having a new shop built but not what for. Yesterday they stopped to see a glider /cradle I am building and John mentioned he was going to try his hand at woodworking in his new shop, he wanted some advise. I made an offer. He jumped at the chance and today will be his first day in my shop. My age, and as eager as a 1st year apprentice this will be fun. I am NOT a master woodworker, just a Master Electrician but I will pass on all I can. I hope to help him set up his shop and hope all of you LJ’s will too. BTW He is watching LJ’s now and hopefully will post after we make our first project today. A toy of course, for his grand kids.
