I think I started woodworking in 1970. My Dad was cabinetmaker, as was my Uncle John and Great-Uncle Marshall. I guess I have cellulose running in my veins. I started selling my projects after my Pastor asked me how much for a pair of end tables. Word traveled fast and soon I was inundated with projects from family and friends. My wife was my best client although no money ever actually changed hands! In the mid-80's, I started doing local ctaft shows at churches and schools, and still do to this day. I truly enjoy what I do in my 'lil woodshop and until I retired from the petroleum industry in '09, I had somewhat limited shop time. Now I spend as much time in the shop as humanly possible, doing what I love to do. I guess if I ever grow tired of woodworking (which I doubt will ever happen), I could just pack it in and go fishin'!
