Well, for about the last 2 years I’ve been floating in woodworking limbo. After the closing of the woodworking retail store in Baltimore I worked at I’ve not had any chance to get my hands dusty. Being to busy getting my mother-in-law’s house ready for sale and trying to keep a now four year old entertained before school starts on top of financial troubles which have forced me to sell all my power tools (you’ll have to pry the hand tools from my dead hands) means that I have no shop. This weekend we are moving and I’m hoping that with the new location, comes a new job that will allow me to save up and start replacing some of the tools I had to sell. I’ve also been in the process of writing a business proposal in the hopes that I could get a small business loan. On the plus side, I won’t need to much to get what I need to start (estimating about $10-12 grand for tools and supplies), but that doesn’t include a location. I’m in the “wait and see” zone right now. I’ve applied for jobs in the area we’re moving to and there are several wood working companies there (according to Yellow Pages) I’ll be hitting up once we get there.

Good luck man! You’ve definitely go some skills, there has to be a way for you to leverage them. Just be careful of taking on debt, try to grow slowly and buy the things you need as you go. You will sleep better that way.
