I am now 76 years old and “ok” health wise. As my father use to say if I had known I was going to live this long I would have taken better care of myself. (Not original). Been married to the same sweet lady for the past 56 years, one son who is a banker, a daughter who is in the court system and 3 grandsons who are the joy of my life.
I have been retired for 16 years after a 40 year career with the NS Corp.
I started woodworking about six years ago by building a sun deck for my son. From the day I finished that I started buying “things” and now I have a basement full of machines, wood, jigs, tools and sawdust. Not a day goes by that I don’t spend at least 3 hours down there. I can’t describe the joy and pleasure I get from woodworking. Perhaps a good day on the golf course would compare.
I have never tried to sell many things I make, either giving to family, friends, requests or good causes. Normally don’t make the same thing twice with a couple of exceptions, chess boards/tables, and Jeffersonian book stands.
I love our website and check in about everyday. I consider you guys and girls among the best friends I have. Thank you all.
Ok if you didn’t fall asleep reading this get up and go make some sawdust. Be safe.
