My step-dad helped me to build some end tables and a coffee table for my new home. I was impressed by how many tools it took for us to cut, assemble, and sand the oak together. Bill is a real problem solver; patient and methodical. He thinks before talking, and when faced with a mistake, looks for ways to fix, or change the plans to incorporate the mistake so that our materials were not wasted. Safety was a big issue with him, and that helped me to take my time and not be afraid of the process.
