I started "woodworking" when I became the shop aid for Mr. Spencer's wood shop class, Eastland Jr. High School in Roseville, Michigan in 1980.
Last year, the LOML and I purchased a home with a basement and a garage: JACKPOT!
I always monkeyed around with projects, but now I actually have practical workspace for a permanent workshop. (No cars allowed in the garage please. Thank You!)
I'm excited about my "born-again" or "new-found-again" woodworking and actually having a place to do it. Most importantly, I'm excited that my wife is excited about it too.
