I’ve been doing home repairs and remodeling for the past 25+ years. Some time back a customer asked me if I could build a medicine cabinet. I said yes then figured out how. Lost money on that one but learned a valuable lesson, namely that… uhhh…. hmmm… what was that lesson again? Oh well, anyway, then I kept running into situations that called for a custom piece to be made, so I would make it, lose money, learn a lesson, forget the lesson I learned.. it’s sort of an ongoing cycle. I guess it just boils down to I like working the wood and so I do it. Just started getting serious a couple of weeks ago, when I stumbled across this website. Yeah.. me serious… go figure.

Also, I like the smell of most woods, but not zebra wood… looks pretty but man does it stink! And that’s how I was drawn into woodworking.
