I have dabbled in woodworking off and on for probably 40 years or so.
In those 40 years, I have never really been able to make the time needed to
do it justice. You know, life sometimes gets in the way. In the last couple of years,
I have retired so I get to dink around in the shop as much as I want when I want.
I finally have the time to start and finish projects. I have built and sold several pieces.
I haven’t decided what exactly I want to build, but I am doing a lot of different things,
just trying to get proficient. I have a lot of years ahead of me, so I am kicking back
and enjoying the ride.

Congrats on retiring. I hope you can continue to build and sell pieces, retaining the art ┬áthat is woodworking, versus blindly shoving stock in some machine … ”building” ┬áthe same thing over and over again … praying for a profit! And, if pieces cannot be sold, may you be in the position to gift them. God speed.

I like your projects on your web page. They are not the canned projects from store bought plans.

I am retiring later this year and will be very busy in the shop – new house, new shop, putting in new kitchen, pantry, bathrooms and the like, then there is the furniture Mommy wants.

Enjoy the ride and have fun. One thing about retirement, you have to keep your mind and body working. Just sitting around is not a good thing.
