Not to detract from the OP, but I would listen. I grew up not too far from Lancaster and Strasburg PA, better known as Amish country. They are amazing people, no cars (horse and buggy), no electric, and they build everything by hand. Never saw a barn raising in person, but have seen plenty that were built that way. Not a single one I have ever met that I wouldn't want in a life boat with me. Good Folk, salt of the earth.
Woodworking is more than a hobby.
It is a journey of discovery,
An application of innovation and creativity,
And an opportunity at self improvement.
