I started serious woodworking when I retired many years ago. I’ve designed and built 3 kitchens, one for each son and one for our home. Our daughter is next in line for a total makeover of her kitchen. I’ve also done some furniture for the house and of course the annual Christmas gifts for each family. When I retired we did a house addition, a large room for my wife to sew quilts and a shop for me. Only problem I gave her too much room so all my equipment has to be on wheels, but it works.
A constant dilemma is that I have too many activities between woodworking, fly fishing, tending a collection of 40 bonsai trees and doing a lot of volunteer work, not to mention snow skiing and an occasional trip. Presently I am on 3 volunteer boards (Chair of one, co-chair of a second and Treasurer of the third). Additionally, I belong to a woodworking club, a woodturning club, a fly fishing club and bonsai club. Whoever said retirement is boring? Anyway, I’m not devoted to the shop and there can be long stints between making sawdust. I just met another Orangevale woodworker who told me about Lumberjocks, so I’ll see if I find time to do an occasional post.
