Married to a wonderful woman, Christmas tree farmer by trade and woodworker on the side for about 15 years.
Spent that time outfitting a fairly well equipped shop and teaching myself power tool techniques, all the while missing an important part of woodworking. Learning to properly use hand tools.
In the last couple years I have become almost addicted to learning and using the tools of past generations. There is something to be said for making shavings with a tool that is 100 years old and still works as good as the day it was bought new. Imagine what that tool has seen over the years. Imagine what the craftsman of old did with that same tool that I hold in my hand today. Not to mention the fact that it is sometimes just as fast as power tools but quiet with significantly less dust and a good way to unwind after the stressful workday.
-- Just remember,it was a lone amatuer that built the ark, and a team of experts built the Titanic.
