I'm a 56year old, disabled home builder / cabinet maker. My landlord is the greatest, he lets me have nearly the whol basement for a workshop. It's small but I make do very well since I downsized all my equipnent. We ( my son and I ) build boxes of all kinds, storage boxes, gun cases, computer breefcases, trunksof all sizes, and even a few pet caskets.
I use a lot of 1/4" plywood and poplar, and some oak and mapel.
I 'try' to suploment my social security income with these -lol- at times.
My son is back from Afghanastan sp? and my brother has retired, it's time to put them to work and get serious about the shop, website, and building cases for everything. It would be so nice to put money IN the bank for once. -lol-
