I retired at the early age of 50 back in early 2010, after 25 years and have a huge passion for wood working. I have just started my own small woodworking business, I started heavy into wood working somewhere in 2000 building model air planes then took a huge step into building new maple cabinets for my kitchen which can be viewed in my projects, then onto building custom furniture and many other small projects, my newly found passion is building bandsaw boxes. I am self taught no schooling or training of any kind, just seem to have a knack for figuring out how things work and go together, when I need info on something I do research via google/video/books and or ask questions which I am grateful for the people here in LJs in this area.
