I always swore I would never have an office job. Now I have one. Being a guy and needing the feeling of accomplishment, the shop has become my retreat. I can go home and say "look, I did that". It may not be great, but its something.

I found the love for woodworking in highschool shop and have slowly been trying to put together an effecient shop of my own. Its all a work in progress. I love clean, simple builds (like Arts & Crafts style) Or crazy, knotty ugly wood that most wouldn't dare use. I find clean wood (while stable) boring. Not that there is anything wrong with those that use clean wood. Just my preferance.
