Long time radio control modeler and woodworker. I do mostly small furniture items, boxes and scroll saw work. An unemployed software developer who is working hard at becoming a professional woodworker until a software job opens up or I start making enough money to pay the bills!

Thank you for the warm welcomes! I think I shall enjoy hanging around this place. There is obviously tons of information here. And I have already started reading some of the material from the pro guys as to how business is. In many cases it does not sound very good. I spent 20 years in the telecom business as a senior software developer until I was laid off last October (a familiar theme no doubt). So while I am looking for more software development work, I am trying to get a custom furniture/cabinet/??? shop going. I have a number of ideas for things that might sell over the web but I am really looking forward to reading about guys like me who may be setting a toe in the water to who have tips to share.

I will get some photos of my models up. I have a 1/4 scale Piper J3 that I had been working on until other things began to take precedence.
