I had a lot of teachers. The first was my grandpa. He was followed by an 8th grade woodworking class where a Stanley manual plane was the most dangerous tool we could use, a sophomore wood shop class in which we used almost everything but the table saw, a brief stint as a pattern maker's apprentice, a LONG hiatus, 20 years of watching Norm and finally the investment in my own shop tools and designing my own router table. And it didn't hurt that my stepdad was in the home construction business for 54 years (but I only worked for the company briefly as a teenager). But I'm still learning and I give a lot of credit to people here.
