I just started woodworking in April of 2009, when my college age daughter said "Daddy, do you have a card table I can borrow until I get a desk?" and I responded, "I can do better than a card table!" A desktop and set of shelves to put on top were my first project, and so started my journey. I always thought I would start woodworking when I retired, but I'm 15 years from retiring, and here I go!! I'm loving it. I've been bitten by the bug, and I've got a bad case. Found out, and remembered, that my father was an accomplished budding woodworker. He did a lot of built-ins in the home that I moved away from when I was 5. He kinda dropped the hobby after that. I guess running his own contracting business and raising 8 children kept him busy enough. I am now in possession of a 2-kneewell desk with a hardboard top he built for my 2 oldest brothers some 50 odd years ago, still rock solid. It sits in my workshop now as another work table. Now that he is gone, I really appreciate having it around me every time I step into the shop. Thanks Dad!
