Biagio,

I guess I forgot to mention that I abhorred school !!! LOL

The only courses I enjoyed were auto mechanics, technical drawing, Geography and ???? can't think of any other. Oh yes did I mention that at that time I didn't enjoy woodworking ! wow how we change, from not enjoying something to now teaching it to others ! and loving it.
I attended French schools from grade 1 to grade 6, then tried the English schools for my first 2 years of high school and then ended up in a very small school that the only optional course was typing. That's when I asked my parents if I could go back to the French school and take the auto mechanics course. I am thankful that I learned the French language for it has allowed me to excel during my career. Living in Quebec Canada, French is a must if you want to succeed. I can also say that'' je n'ai jamais entendu ou utilisť ce mot J'abhorre '' ! but I assure you I know many other bad words that I won't mention. LOL

Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.

Abhor isn't used commonly but it isn't rare either. I had some issues when I was in French speaking Switzerland with Je demande, Je commande and Je veux. You would think we would have translated those words from French to English with equivalent meanings but not the case. I thought I was being polite saying Je veux when I should have said Je demande. I was surprised to see the reaction on the guy's face I was talking to when I did it.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
