Don’t rule out working with your hands. It does not preclude using your head.
– Andy Rooney
My experience over the last couple of months with a new trade has definitely reinforced this notion. If you try hard enough, you can find a way to glide through just about any job without much critical thinking. Woodworking, if you want the final product to actually fit together, requires as much thought and decision making as anything I have done in the past. Well, maybe not Calculus, but I haven’t run across the need for differential equations in making a retail fixture or furniture. Yet.
