Down & out? Not any more, I’m back and and catch’n up. trying to build for family, and friends while working my regular job is hard. the demand is out there, my recenct injury has been a learning expencive lesson. its been a busy year so far, working at nights as a security officer, and getting up early in morning for a few hours, then staying in the shop all day on my days off to keep up with the request of everyones dream of what they would like built. The economy is kinda shaky, at work we have just been hit with lay-offs, so far I.m still there. Put it all together, with these chain of events I’ve went and added a web site www.borderfrenchwoodworking.com and With the help of My best friend Ray in Gulfport, MS, and now my brother-in law Tracy in Pensacola, Fl together we have decided to try and go full time between our normal work. With uncontrolable events that happens…. is born a desire to grow cobra5…is alive

Tim, I am glad to hear that you are healing and getting back into the shop. It is wonderful to read about your “new” commitment to go from a hobbyist to a pro. I wish you nothing but the best.

Keep us posted on your progress.

I’m a slow learner. I have a problem with my router table. It likes my fingers. The count so far is Milwaukee “2”, Jack “0”. I have since bought many, many jigs to hold itty bitty pieces… Glad you are doing well. jack
