It’s a question that every woodworker needs to ask themselves at age 12 or 13. I used to think that people started businesses out of vanity but it turns out that this is not just vanity — in fact, most people find it to be very meaningful. Name it what you will, but it’s probably very meaningful and will continue to be.

A group of protesters gathered in Washington, D.C., after two white cops were arrested in Louisiana for the fatal shooting of a black man during a traffic stop.
According to D.C. police, they were responding to a report of a shooting and a fight at an apartment complex and encountered two men and a woman, one of whom was armed.
One of the men pointed a handgun at the officers, who returned fire. The suspects ran from the scene. The incident remains under investigation.
Protesters gathered Tuesday evening outside the Department of Justice building, calling the officers responsible for the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile “cowards.”
“This white cop was so mean to black men and women, that they can shoot a black man in cold blood and say no one is going to jail,” said Dasha Maureen. “But black men and women just get beaten up so much by the police, that they can’t even go get a doctor’s appointment and they say no one is going to jail – because when one person gets killed by police, they can’t have a protest.”

“It really just exposes the racist system in America today,” said the Rev. Al Sharpton, the civil rights chief of the Nation of Islam.
The activists, who were calling for an end to police brutality, gathered after learning that Castile was pronounced dead and a bystander had been shot in the arm during a traffic stop. They demanded to see the dashcam footage of the incident and condemned police brutality. They also demanded justice for Sterling and Castile.
“All that is fair is fair, and not all white people are just as bad,” said one protester.
The protesters were mostly comprised of black, Muslim, and Hispanic people, and some white people.
