Some fodder, not fit for consumption.

I have discovered something about myself:  I am not just a foodie. Apparently, for some reason, WOOD, the look, smell, feel and workability of it, have me hooked!  My dad, in his own right, was a very talented woodworker. I recall many times, loathing his love of woodworking. Probably because he cared little for bodybuilding , or the Miami dolphins.  I have found , as I have reached the age of wisdom/maturity (debatable!), some of Dad’s hobbies are now becoming attractive to me. Perhaps it is because I am learning more about him , thru his former hobby….The learning curve is steep. admittedly, but challenging. I force myself to try projects with a greater degree of difficulty. with the passing days. One day at a time, baby steps…I’ve heard those words  before, and O, are they proving the adage these days, with everything…Any tips, and/or advice is WELCOMED, from those in the know, when it comes to woodworking..

  1. Anthony, You are a very creative person. Always enjoy your postings. Have been inspired to make some great sour doughs. Now wood working too. I am impressed. I have recently started some projects, but maybe not as creative as what you are doing but I am learning new skills. Made a great work bench,Potting table,Saw horses,little cabinets and things like that. Enjoy and have a happy and creative 2015 <Roelof.

    • Roelof, how nice to hear from you! I speak of you often, to my GF. I tell her about how mesmerizing it was to watch you ice a cake in 2 minutes, perfectly , I might add. God bless you, friend. I miss laughing with you at Thrifty’s. Good times. Be well, and please post some pics sometimes…Don’t be shy…
