I watched and Learned from my Dad... his successes and mistakes, from my 7th grade woodshop teacher and our mistakes, and ultimately my mistakes. What I've learned is that my mistakes have been my greatest teacher!

Like most, by mistakes, mistakes and more mistakes. Trust me, I'm still learning and will probably never stop!

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

If the weather will permit, I hope I can make a few mistakes today. I need to make a shelf to hold a cassette deck under a desk. Yes, a cassette deck. Then I need to make a custom rack for a Panasonic AG1980 editing VCR, a Nakamichi Dragon cassette deck, a Tascam 32 reel-to-reel tape deck, and a turntable. How's that for a blast from the past?

I've mostly stumbled through attempts at making things for friends and family. I think that they hide them in the basement until they know I'm coming over, then bring them back out as if they had them on display all the time.

I've learned more about woodworking in the two or so years I've been in this forum than in the rest of my life put together. This is a good opportunity to say "Thanks!" to all who are so generous with their knowledge, creativity, and patience.

It seems I never finish what I

When I got out of the Navy in 65 I got a job in commercial construction. Then worked with my father in law (part time) doing remodeling. I got involved in a woodworking, wood turning and a carving club from there. Watched a lot of demo's at the club meetings and had friends in the clubs that would mentor the rookies. Took some classes. Took every woodworking magazine out there. Learned a lot the hard way by making mistakes on my own. So all in all most of what I have learned is due to knowledge imparted to me by others. This forum is a great example of what you can learn from friends. Hard things become easy when you have good advice from friends. Good luck in your new endeavor.
