I'm a creative guy.  I have found that if I'm not doing something creative I tend to spin out & go crazy.

Whether it's learning something on the guitar, putting content out on the socials, or simply updating a new space in my house, I need something that gives me an outlet for my creativity.

Why Woodworking?

Have you ever considered taking up woodworking as a hobby? It's one of the most creatively satisfying things you can do. Imagine being able to make your own coffee table, bed, or even cabinets for your home or office. It's a great feeling to be able to show off something you made with your own two hands.

I'm NOT a "woodworker".  I don't even play one on TV.  But sometimes I play pretend in my garage and come up with some fun things for the house.  It doesn't have to be a huge project in order to feel the satisfaction of woodworking. The mancave I'm building in my garage is proof of that.

The Downside of Woodworking

Now, I'll be honest with you, woodworking does come with its downsides. One of the biggest challenges is the need for a large collection of tools. From basic hand tools like chisels and hammers to power tools like table saws and drills, it can be a bit overwhelming. But don't let that discourage you. In fact...you don't need to own any tools at all!  You just have to know the right people.
