I felt into the trap of woodworking addiction starting from a simple tool, an Makita impact driver. Bought it to do some simple renovation around the house. The next thing I knew was another hand plane, followed by a table saw, additional wood slabs and non stop of tools and materials accumulation… Felt in love with the paper thin shavings a hand plane could produce, inspired by the pattern from the wood grain, it is simply rewarding to witness how wonderful a piece of lumber could transform into. The aroma, the curvature, the natural beauty, wood brought sophistication and elegance into this very passion of mine that bonded with nature. Woodworking elevates me into a dimension that I never know exists, an ancient skill where the sky is still the limit.
I am glad I felt into this trap, it has been a joyous journey thus far.
