Sure. I fell into welding by accident; I actually tried to be a carpenter. I moved to Wolfe Island and I met the president of MetalCraft Marine on the island. Hitchhiking is really popular on the island, and he picked me up one day and we started chatting and he encouraged me to apply for a job there. He said that they really like to hire carpenters; carpenters have to be exact within one-sixteenth of an inch whereas metal workers tend to be within one-quarter of an inch. With boat building, you have to be within one-sixteenth of an inch, so they like to hire carpenters and then teach them how to work with metal.
