I love all kinds of woodworking from scroll sawing to turning to using my CNC Making Furniture to selling Unique Gifts for that special someone in your life. Been working with wood since I was a teenager. Now I’m in the over the hill stage of my life lo (late 60’s) enjoying my golden years but being disabled (hard to stand but not impossible) as long as I can find a way to brace myself so my legs don’t give out or my back can stand the immense pain so I’m up for 2 or 3 minutes then I have to sit for 20 minutes because I get exhausted and my body feels like it is getting squeezed and feel so heavy. But I want to work with my wood be it domestic or exotic I’ve got so much wood that I’ve accumulated over the years. I have it everywhere
. Where my wife and I live we have a shed for a washer and dryer but you can hardly move there is so many boxes and pieces of wood tools, some of my woodworking equipment that should go to my metal shed that my workshop is now that is so unorganized from when I had to put it together my sons just stack boxes everywhere, now I’m trying to make overhead storage without screwing wood to the metal roof or sidewall it has small thin metal like I-beams I slotted 2×4’s to from center to the next I-beam then an offset from there to the side wall which I’ll epoxy a 2×4 to it then put 2×4 cross beam so I can stack pieces of wood over head to get the mess off the floor also organize the other mes in plastic boxes under the bench my CNC table the table my Lathe is on then I have rolling tables for my table saw my smalll bandsaw and an air conditioner I put in front of the doors with the back facing outside to keep it cool in there. It gets hot in the Florida sun especially in a metal shed it gets like an oven in there I’m putting styrofoam insulation up on the ceiling panels with liquid naill glue or gorilla glue it’s good for hot metal up to 200% F after I organize my messy work shed I’ll get back to work making my gifts to make extra income so we can live without as much stress worrying about how we will pay our bills on just my SS . I play guitar been playing since I was 14 . I have two acoustic and three electric guitars. I also have a small music studio that I enjoy recording music in plus my computers ,iPads PC and Mac all accumulated over my lifetime so I keep busy at least I try when I’m able and feeling strong enough and not hurting from my injuries it’s true what they say it’s hell getting old lol ‘NUFF SAID” I’m out
