A friend recommended that I read Hogbin on Woodturning by Stephen Hogbin. I’m just getting into it, and found this comment on making mistakes (page 17):
Mistakes happen almost every day and what counts is the ability to work with the situation… If you are not making mistakes your skills are not being tested or extended.
Does your woodwork push your capabilities? How far? Do you ever feel unsure about what you are doing? How unsure? Do you push through anyways? Is the end result worth it?
