The game goes like this. Finish the sentence, “Before I started woodworking…”.
Examples:
Before I started woodworking I didn’t realize how huge 1/16” was.
Before I started woodworking I didn’t realize the price of exotic wood was the price of a tool.

Now you.

Before I started woodworking, I was just a kid living at home with my folks—I knew EVERYTHING back then.
Now that I’ve been woodworking for 36 years, I seem to have forgotten so very much – but my parents got smarter!
