I have taught woodworking, metalworking, welding, drafting and pre engineering for 40yrs. I am retiring in May of 2015.Now the fun begins working full time in the woodshop. I have several projects on my list starting with replacing the kitchen cabinets that I built 25yrs. ago.

Hey Woodmaster1- to be more specific I taught first a course called the World of Construction programed for the middle school but it soon turned into a traditional woodshop (so glad) until they thought woodshop was outdated and they (administration) turned it into a Paxton Patterson tech lab. Only did that for 2 years by then I had 31 yrs and the no child left behind said I was unqualified because I didn’t have the clad credential. So now I am very content to know that I did what I loved and still do without any administration to contend with except for my better half. Good luck for your last 2 I hope you will enjoy ret. as much as I do. bob
