Skill

Skill – The ability to make something difficult look easy.  One definition anyway.  The following photo shows two tables, the one on the right I built in about 1996 and the one on the left in 2016.  During the past 20 years I think I may have improved my skills.  In 1996 I had no tools, no knowledge and no experience, but I did have the desire to be a woodworker.  Today, I have access to good tools and a wonderful mentor and am gaining knowledge and experience.  My passion for woodwork only grows from year to year…
