although I worked in the trades for years, doing a wide variety of jobs from the usual labor to rough framing to tuck pointing to .... well you get the idea, I hadn't ever really done or even tried what I call "Fine Carpentry". Mostly didn't have the time or the extra money as I started my family too early. Well along the way I failed to use enough protective gear and my lungs decided to make me pay for that bad choice. Well now I have plenty of time for woodworking and have discovered that I actually find great joy and often times even an unmatched level of peace from it.
