Accident and desperation! Was an aimless youth looking (not hard) for a future, construction and trades was not on the radar. Marriage and children was a sobering introduction to reality along with disinterest in meaningless work. It began with a house contractor who supplied a house framing course. I jumped at the opportunity, the experience would be an eye opener of thinking and learning towards an objective with a instructor with the coolness and experience of a seasoned journeyman. A man much respected and a motivator in my career as a journeyman by what he once said "A good carpenter can do anything". A successful career behind me I have not lost the desire to motivate young people interested in trades. I have taught apprentices and high school students in construction practices, It was an enjoyable experience indeed.
