I have operated my carpentry business for 10 years now. Before that, I worked for others and even tried other careers making a lot more money. For me, building things is a disease, so I'm done looking at other careers! At times I have had a couple of employees, and did it all. The last few years I have operated solo, and now I'm changing my focus to that of a Finish Carpenter/Woodworker. If it doesn't look like I would enjoy doing it, I just politely turn the job down. I'm at an age now, where I can still keep up with the young guns all day. I just can't get out of the truck once I get home! LOL

My current workshop is a section of my basement that measures 8'x14'. At one time 20 years ago, we had a small family workshop business. It was my Dad, my Brother and me. My Dad had taken an early retirement from the corporate world. Unfortunately the call, and money to return, became to hard to keep saying no. So my Dad closed up shop and went back into the corporate world. He ran his consulting business until his health forced him into retirement. My Brother and I joined him for a couple years, but it wasn't for us so I started my Carpentry Business, and my Brother went to work for High End Builders where he continues to troll the ocean side estates that we have here. Nothing like gutting out a 10,000 sq ft home, then adding another 10-20,000 ft to make it livable for the new owners! :) I'll have room to expand the shop once my brother has time to remove all the power tools that are now his. After my Dad passed away 2010 I offered him the tools. I'm still at the homestead so my Mom can stay in the house. I plan on doing most of my work using hand tools only. I will keep my power tools out in my garage, and if I need to use them I can.
