A few details about myself.
- I first started woodworking when I found my dad's hammer and a can of nails when I was about 5 years old. I proceeded to hammer nails into the basement stairs that my father had just made. He was building the house we lived in so I assume now that watching him got me interested. Needless to say he and my mother weren't happy.
I loved shop class in elementary school and I took an optional woodworking class in grades 9 and 10. I worked part time in a woodworking shop when I was in high school and learned a lot there. My first project was a 4X8 pool table that I made when I was 16.
When I got married in 1976 and bought our first house I renovated the entire first floor and moved the kitchen to a new location. I justified buying a 9" Beaver Rockwell table saw to my wife by promising to make her new cabinets. I used that saw for another 25 years.
My job took me from Toronto to New Brunswick where I bought a house that had an extra 2 car garage. I used this to build my first dedicated workshop. I'm retired now and trying to find more time to spend in the shop.
