I have built houses, well a couple for myself. and any number of projects with wood. I was the president of my local Kiwanis club when we sponsored the first house for the local High School.
I love working with wood from furniture to cabinetry and woodturning.
I look forward to being a member of this forum.
My father and I, mostly him, made my first workbench at age six, so I know I was hammering nails before that,
It was done entirely with hand tools. He also made a small stool to sit on also. Years afterwards, "I got rid of it" for some reason, probably because by that time mom and I were moving all over Chicago and suburbs. He was visibly disappointed when he found out, but I didn't understand the sentimental value it meant to him.
Now that I have a son, I treasure the things we build together, whether it's woodworking, welding up a truck bed, even an entire truck restoration.
Welcome to the forum.
