I am looking at retirement sometime soon. If i can aford it. Age happens. Money does not always. Starting picking up Wood working hobby a couple a years back after a long absence after High School.
I grew up farming and farmed for a time. Did a lot of machinery repair, welding, mechanical and building some of my own little inventions for the farm. I use to like to go to farm auctions and see the inventions they came up with. You don't see that much any more as farms have gotten larger.
In 2007 I built a teardrop trailer. Built the frame and used rear axle from a VW Rabbit pickup of who knows what year. Built the body and learned a bit about making doors and haning them. Had to learn to build my own cabinets, face frames. Of course it would have been a sin to use any plans. And as I sin enough I did not want to add another to the list.
I now work ( use to work now, the )&^* laid the whole site off end of 2009) for a major computer company in a call center taking calls fixing servers. I love it when I am finishing a project. In the mornings I put on a coat of danish oil and then off to work with a good coat on me. It just feels right. Also a bit of dirt I often drive on on my way to work is a real joy.
-- That was not wormy wood when I started working on it.
