Hi everyone, I'm a 55 yr old and just retired on disability do to a bad heart condition, so I'm looking for a hobby to keep me busy and I love woodworking.
I started out in my 20's building houses from the ground up and always enjoyed the finer woodworking aspect of the job, but was really had the chance to show what I can do.
After a divorce, turn changed careers and became a heavy equipment operator and have been so for the last 17 yrs, but now I'm forced to retire.
For Christmas a made a great looking wine rack out of an old pallet and that lit the fire for my hobby and I've been obsessed with woodworking and projects everyday.
For now though, I'm dreaming about what my new shop is going to look like and what tools I will really need to get me started. But all this is going to have to wait till spring time, so for now, I just want to hang around wit the woodies (LOL) and educate myself on what is happing and how to look for good wood, etc.
I really look forward to chatting with you all and learning.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. Great place and great people.

I had one of those ugly divorces. Looking back, should have done it 10 years sooner. Good luck in life sir.

Welcome to the luney bin! Pull up a seat and put on your straight jacket. Jump right in to the middle of everything and enjoy the knotheads around here.
AND POST THE WINE WRACK, that will get more responses than anything else. Unless of course you have legs like Greta Garbo.
