Are you getting out of Woodoworking, cleaning up or up grading?>

If it is related to health and there is little chance of being able to do any more woodworking, I completely understand. If this is because of finances or because you have hit a rut and WW is not currently pleasurable to you, I would ask that you give it a little more time. One can empty a shop in a few days but it takes years to build up again. With finances, it is usually a bandaid that only covers the wound for a few months, then the bandaid is peeled off and one usually finds themselves both broke and without tools. Again, what it takes to rebuild is not usually what is worth sacrificing. Please give it some more thought before you sell.

Agree with David and Moron—especially if you have older tools, not made in Taiwan which are almost irreplaceable in today’s manufacturing environment. I know I have gone in cycles with various interests and WW drops off my radar for months, but I always come back and enjoy it more after each break.

I believe that his decision has been in the works for quite a while. Carpal tunnel issues If I remember correctly. I’m sure he won’t leave us on the LJ site, but I respect his decision if woodworking is no longer feasible. Let’s all wish him well.

A little story:

For many years I was a truck owner operator, later had a small (very small) fleet of trucks and did my own mechanical work.

This was in the Heyday of the two stroke Detroit Diesel… Screamin’ Jimmy’s they were known as.

I had a fellow that drove for me that was one of the best Detroit Diesel Mechanics around. He knew stuff about those engines that isnt in any book and he could make one really set up and sing.

Unfortunately, he lost both legs when a street car in Philadelphia jumped the tracks and tok off the front end of his truck.

He could no longer drive, and he couldn’t get into the top end of the engines, but he spent a couple of years in my shop directing me and others on how to fix those old beasts.

Moral of the story?
Maybe you could find a few kids interested in learning wood working and let them gain knowledge in your shop.
With your experience you could teach so many so much!

Whatever your decision, we are all behind you all the way!

I don’t know what you reasons are but , I don’t think you should just walk away from wood working maybe just shut down the shop for a while. 6 months from now you might feel differently.Just a thought. ............................Schloemoe

Great story and suggestion Dallas… too bad for the old driver. I learned to drive on a screaming Jimmy and now I’m retired. Read Dallas’ post again Gman and listen to what these guys are telling you. It’s good advise – all of it. Be cautious in your decision. It’s like cutting a board… if you cut it too short, it becomes scrap. If you cut it too long, you’re still in the game. Sneak up to the final cut Gman!
