I've been interested in wood working for as long as I can remember and have the scars to prove it. However, it is only since we bought a house that I've had a chance to really learn anything substantial. With an 80-year old house, lots of maintenance work necessary, and an attic full of doug fir decking that a former owner salvaged, I was able to show my wife that buying a few tools, even expensive ones, and doing the work ourselves was cheaper than paying for the work and materials. Once the house repairs are complete I plan to learn furniture making.
