Steven Zak, Sarasota, FL, US

I am retired because of having six lower back surgeries and also two neck fussions. Have been woodworking as a hobby for over 45 years and still try to get out in my shop as much as possible but with the pain I am in everyday sometimes I only last several minutes but it still gives me pleasure. Over the years I have made from kitchen cabinets to jewlery boxes and you name it, all kinds of furniture in between. Most of my items now are smaller but still tackle something of size now and then, have a neighbor who helps me when I can not handle the larger items by myself. Woodworking is kind of my therophy and am glad that I have something that offers me pleasure. It also is so nice to take a peice of wood and turn it into something that everyone enjoys. Be safe and have fun in your shop and remember you learn something new each and everyday!

Re: UPDATE: Read a review of Wooden Boxes by the giveaway winner

I have built several boxes but am always looking for new ideas and from what I see this book looks just like what I am looking for. Would be a nice Christmas present and also my birthday is Dec. 24 so could be a 2 for1!
