The Retrospective photo album in this website traces my journey from Novice to Pretty Darn Good.
Initially it involved taking classes; just enough to make me a safe beginner.
So, I started with the easiest project which was a set of coasters. There is no logic in the development process. It’s simply an example of someone who doesn’t know what he wants to do and can’t wait to experiment with the next idea. In the beginning there was a fair amount of copying things done by others. This was very valuable in “learning the trade.” When you don’t have a destination it doesn’t matter which way you go.
