In this article, Jerry Forshee talks about the pieces of wisdom he's learned from others over a 25-year woodworking career
It was 25 years ago that I took my first hands-on woodworking class. In the years since, while developing my skills, I have discovered that woodworkers are an amazing class of people. They’re almost always eager to share their knowledge, experiences, and tools with those less experienced. It’s often like they have no secrets. Since so many have shared their time and wisdom with me during my woodworking journey, I’ve tried to do the same. In this article I will talk about the pieces of woodworking wisdom I’ve learned along the way.
Jerry C. Forshee is a woodworker in Bloomington, Ind.
