I do not know how most of you got the wood bug, but mine came a little by accident and a little from my grandfathers. Actually, I am a Language Arts Teacher of 7th Graders. I love teaching; it really is my calling in life, but wood working has helped me reach some kids I just could not reach in a classroom.
My grandfathers taught me how to work with my hands by working my tail off as a kid. I was amazed at my Grandfather Preston. He could take a piece of wood and make anything. Usually that piece of wood was from some old tree the power company cut down. From my Grandfather White, I learned how to build big things such as barns and houses. But the most important lesson I learned from my Grandfather White was how to work hard. It seems to be a dirty word these days, but I love to work.
The accident part came when a friend saw some things I had made, and she asked me if I could remodel her kitchen. Like an ego trip male, I said I could. It was probably my worse work; however, a new world opened itself up to me. So I began adding tools up and making things for friends(who were trying to save a buck), and it has snowballed into a pretty good business.
During the Summer, weekends, and some nights I keep busy--and sane my I add-- by building cabinets and other things people want. I am very fortunate that I have found two things in life that make me happy--Teaching and Woodworking.
