Wow! At 68 I am one of the younger members. My father, grandfather, great grandfather and great great grandfather were carpenters in England so perhaps love of woodworking has a genetic component. My own trajectory was different. After a couple years of woodwork in school I had to give it up to take Latin (for the Oxford entrance exam). After seven years at Oxford, five at Harvard and five at the Rockefeller University in New York City, I ended up with a tenured faculty position at Yale - but more importantly a house with a basement to start collecting tools. In 2006 became founding chair of a neuroscience department at a PA medical school, did that for twelve years and now have the luxury of no administration, just research and writing. We built a house in 2007 and I have made about a dozen pieces of furniture for it. Fortunately, Pennsylvania has such a rich supply of beautiful native hardwoods. With umpteen grandchildren appearing I have also been making cradles, changing tables, chests etc. The list of things I have been asked to make keeps growing so that will keep me busy for the next decade.
