Maybe some of us veteran woodworkers don’t spend as much time in the shop as some one like us that are working this for a full time business. I have had some people say to me ” you have that done already”
Yes ! when one has the right tools and Knowledge and experience as some of us.
I look back at the places I worked before I was a full time woodworker,
( St.johns table Co. Cadillac Mich. Hard wood dinning room furniture. started as a chair inspector then moved into cabinet assembler.)
( 3 years with Kindel furniture Co.Grand Rapids, Mich. High end Dinning & bed room furniture, started as a sub-assembler, ended up as Drawer and Door fitter)
( Baker furniture Co. Grand Rapids, MI 12 years, with learning to be a Drawer & Door fitter landed this
job with Baker )
Not all of us are as lucky I was to get employed with as much exposure to woodwork or now even
in the same trade as I have . Another point I want to make , Learn from one’s that have more years and experience than you. I picked up a lot of knowledge from the Veterans of their trade. I think more that I would have from any book. But books are full of information too.
