Default Woodworking, Dogs, Guitars

It seems to me that many woodworkers are also dog owners (lovers) and guitar players. These three things seem to go together. I fall into this category myself. Anyone else here fit this category?

All except the guitar. For me it's woodwinds (sax, flute, and clarinet). I've also noticed that quite a few folks are from the technical fields, in my case electronics.

Yup for sure, have played the acoustic 6 string all my life, love dogs but lost the last ones in a divorce and havenít had the guts to replace them yet.

2 lathes, 2 table saws, 2 dogs, and 2 guitars. Funny that I never noticed the pattern before.

I have two dogs, because my wife wanted them... it's my job to take care of them, feed and clean up after.... for some reason unknown to me the little one has attached himself to me.... can't say it's love, more tolerance.... I'm tone deaf, unmusical, can't carry a tune in a bucket, not even good at playing a radio.... but I AM a wood turner.

Woodworking and dogs yes, guitar no. My dogs are my technical advisors in the shop. They advise me when I'm out of doggie treats and when I need to go to the bathroom.

4 dogs and 4 guitars for me. I'm not sure I actually classify as a woodworker or guitarist, but I make sawdust and noise. And the dogs, I'm pretty sure they own me...

You nailed it.

Started as a luthier before pens. First started building guitars due to my "gas" (Guitar Acquisition Syndrome).

Two lathes, one dog, two cats, no guitar. I can pick out tunes by ear on a piano, but that's about it.
