Well, I just got off the phone with my dad and he doesn’t want to spend more than 10k all in.

sooooooo… I’m thinking I better start learning some hand skills. I’ve done a little by hand before, but whew I’m not in the best shape. If I could get a good TS and a planer… that would help. I could shop cheaper cabinet TS than a SS. WE both agreed we need to start. You can’t make a thing without starting.

I also thought of building more rustic type of furniture where I wouldn’t need such high end equipment. At the same time I don’t want to buy junk.

the good news, is I don’t need to make a living right from the get go. My wife works and she has a great job so my first priority of course is to break even. Make just enough to pay the building rent, which I have no clue as to how much that will be. I’m going to be looking into that tomorrow.

-- Ciao!
