I was about eleven years old when, after we tore a house down next door, my dad and I used the reclaimed lumber to build a deck for our house. I had an immediate liking to working with wood. In high school shop class, I spent an entire semester designing and building a fancy chess table, or at least I thought is was fancy. Twenty years later I was finally able to start accumulating some tools for a woodworking shop. Well, I now have a shop and it's time to start putting it to work.
