Like many things, how we approach woodworking is probably how we approach our life. I find at some point, you just have to jump in and get started with what you know how to do – because you can’t possibly imagine all the questions, issues, challenges up front. But by jumping in and getting started, you can begin to think in practical terms about a very specific thing, the next step and work your way through it, one step at a time. Before you know it, you’ve solved every challenge and you are there. But you will never get there unless you start! Getting started is the most important part of accomplishing your dreams!

Good luck with you bench and your studies!

Steve, thanks so much for taking the time to write such encouraging words. You are absolutely right, and put it so succinctly.
Best,
