Re: Are you a do-it-yourselfer?

Anything I don't do it's just because I haven't got around to learning how....what burns me up is when someone says, in reference to some big woodworking job or rigging or some other such thing, "Your lucky you have the skills"....they are not skills I acquired over a live time as a "professional" but they are all skills I taught myself....people in this culture don't do for them selves any more and end up helpless...in the mercy of a powerful advertising industry that makes people think they have to buy new or have a technician fix it for them.
