I have worked in the tire industry since 2006 and have been a musician my whole life. For years I thought being a musician would turn into a career, but it never worked out, so now I just play random gigs here and there for friends.
Woodworking for me was a life-saver. I was a new dad, work was stressing me out and I felt like I was gonna snap. It has been such a great way for me to just escape for a little while. I can just focus on the task at hand and forget everything else for a moment in time. I find it to be very fulfilling and I never want to give it up.
I also make woodworking videos on YouTube. My channel is at http://www.YouTube.com/cmrwoodworks
