I have been doing some sort of woodworking for the last 30 + years if not in a shop setting it has been in the field doing carpentry. Now I am amazed at the subtleties I am learning about the material (wood) and how to use it. I have discovered that we were created in the image of a creator and so it follows that I find my self pleased most when I am creating. My latest study is in making chairs, stick chairs, the one thing that you hate to fix in the shop and I have been afraid of making because I have had to fix so many broken ones. I hope to assemble one that will hold me up soon.
