Currently (2009) I am 64, "Old Fart", and have been woodworking since high school. There have been some years when raising a family of 4 kids took a lot of time and I didn't get to do much woodworking. Money was also tight when the kids were growing up so my tools were basis at the start. I started a part time business of gunsmithing for many years and that involved a lot of metal working as well. I still did not have an excess of tools; drill press, 12" disc sander, boring jig for scope mounting, bluing tanks, and lots of hand tools.
Well the kids are grown up now and have produced 2 grandsons and 2 great-grand babies. They are such a joy. I now have a very complete woodworking shop in the basement with an abundance of power and hand tools.
We rode a Gold Wing motorcycle for many years and my wife annd I started Chapter Ohio B-3 of GWRRA. We were promoted to Senior Chapter Directors before we stepped down. I also had a repair and customization part-time business during those years of working on Gold Wings only. I was The Wingdoctor.
I still am employed full time for the American Red Cross and get to do my woodworking in the evenings and weekends, when I am not enjoying the great grandkids. I do flat work of all types and turn bowls and pens on a Powermatic 3520B. I hope to make a couple of bucks from the woodworking if I can ever retire. I do sell some of my output currently.
My best customer is my wife of 43 years. Love you dear.
