The bright side:
1. Your best friend is now a woodworker.
2. New and exciting tools are on the horizon.
3. Exotic woods you never hoped to buy will be flowing through your table and band saw.
4. Never work with dark and blotchy stains again!
5. Someone to do all that boring sanding you hate so much.

The dark side:
1. You will have to slow down to teach her many, many things, some of which will make no sense to her.
2. Bumping into another person all the time in your shop, previously your “mancave”.
3. Fruitless explanations on why this Powermatic/Grizzly/Laguna/Festool/Frued is better than the Harbor Freight/Craftsman/Ryobi/(Put your favorite junk tool name here).
4. Soon, your project list will actually be her project list.
5. There is a chance she will end up a better woodworker than you, and learn more techniques.

Updates will be appreciated. For now, I like it when my wife comes down and says, “Do you need anything?”, and I say, “No, I’m fine, Baby.” And she leaves after telling me how beautiful whatever I am working on looks. Close enough for me!
