Older and rusty as hell

In my early years I took part in many projects helping around the house or the garage with family, mostly my grandfather. But after his death while I was in high school the joy I had for wood working felt empty, and life moved on. Now some 20+ years later after buying my home I have felt the urge to create and make new things for my family and my new home... and in hopes to teach my son many of the same lessons taught to me.

So, in my infinite ignorance I have come here, in hopes to ask advice and learn or re-learn the joys from creating something from nothing that my grandfather gave me to.

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Those are great reasons to get back into this hobby. Welcome to the forum. There is a ton of knowledge here and you just have to know how to access it. The secret it to ask. I hope you find the answers you are looking for to the questions you have.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
