    Lots of reasons explain why guys go to the shop. What is your reason?  I go because I get a satisfaction and a peace from working wood that no other activity gives me. I do enjoy the smile from. Satisfied recipient of something that I have made.

    Time spent in the workshop equals peace. 🙂

    I’m passionate about crafting/making things with my hands and have been since childhood and agree 100% regarding the look on a satisfied recipient’s face when he/she is presented with something I’ve made.  I also derive a great deal of satisfaction from what I do and am able to pass on to others.  It must be something in my genetic makeup as my family have been involved in both carpentry and masonry since the middle ages and my son is thankfully able to carry on the tradition. 🙂

    I work in the medical field. I seldom see the end results of my labor. I do not get the saticefaction of a job taken to completion. Woodworking gives me this  feeling of completion.

    Serhiy- that chair turned out great. I have always been excited to see a nice piece of furniture reworked rather than end up on a scrap heap. Nice job…

    I have all ways had an interest in Wood working and like most started out with the “Norm” craze and when I retired 3 years ago decided I want to learn and how to use hand tools.  After 40 years in the Corporate World I find wood working great fun and therapeutic for me.  Plus with the added bonus of making something with your hands.

    Nicely stated Steve 🙂  The beauty about woodwork is the manner by which our endeavours through involvement in the craft can repay us.  Emotional feedback, improved fitness and the therapeutic properties of working wood are only a few of the enhancements we gain.
