20 Things I've Learned From Woodworking
You can spend all day in the shop working, and not produce anything.
Sometimes these are your best days.
Sharpen, sharpen sharpen. The woodworkers mantra.
Never do woodworking angry, agitated or when you need to pee.
Relax and take your time.
Your projects and your fingers will thank you.
If it doesn't feel safe, it's probably not.
Everyone has a woodworking horror story, scars come with the territory.
If you are even slightly squeamish, don't start this conversation.
Nothing hurts as bad as a nasty finish on a well build project.
When in doubt, keep sanding.
Rejects make great gifts. AKA no one else sees your flaws as well as you do.
Tool lust comes with the hobby. Warn your pocketbook early.
There will always be something else you
There is always someone who can out spend you.
Nothing beats the feeling of a well done project.
Except maybe getting paid to do it. AKA Your tool budget just increased.
Pushing yourself is half the fun.
The other half is the sawdust up your nose.
Enjoy yourself. That's the point, remember?
