As the entry period for the annual Young Wood Professionals competition comes to a close, we wanted to hear from our audience about their early years in the woodworking industry.
So we asked our Facebook followers "How did you get involved in the woodworking industry?'
We got some amazing answers:
"Was serving in Marine Corps and wife wanted table and chairs," said Lance Frye. "I couldn’t afford the real deal and refused to buy her something I couldn’t be proud of. Found wood furniture kits and assembled and finished it for her. Time in Marines ended about same time and seemed like an honest business doing something I enjoyed. Twenty-eight years later has become quite a business. Still loving it. OK maybe not ALL of it, but MOST of it anyways."
