    How did you start?

    I'm interested hearing details on how builders here got their start, both amateur and professional.

    What gave you the itch to build your first frame?

    What pitfalls did you encounter the first time?

    What hard-earned advice would you give to newbies?

    For the pros, what convinced you that this should become your livelihood?

    Any other details you're willing to share...

    Suzy has been there and done that - and she's written it all down.

    Read everything that she's written a couple of times - there's real gold there:

    thanks for that link, I haven't heard from Suzy for quite
    a while (she posted over on CR when she first started).
    she seem to have come a long way since then.

    That's a *fantastic* site! I've been looking for something like that for a while.

    Thanks for the heads up.
