I started out building my frist porch in 2006, my wife bought me a skill xshop table saw, and skil router to build the pourch, then i needed a place to store the table saw. my shed then became a shop when my neigbor ask me to build them a shed, then my friend at work asked for a bathroom cabinet….work started to explode!! Last year I had to expand my shed from 10’x12’ to 10’x28’, learning as i go but what a great hobby! I also give credit to my best friend Ray 2008, well I’ve just added an new addition to my shop,8×8 shed now I’ve got a finishing room. this will help speed up progress. may 2009 well here is an up date on my shop, need bigger shop, work is escalating. now i know what i need for chrismas…...like now….....help july 19th 2009 Christmas came early——-with all the work demands out there, cabinets,furnitures,carpentry work ect.. trying to keep up with the work load in my small back yard shop. my brother-in-laws ray, tracy, and myself finaly signed a lease for a 900+sf shop and office.

It happens like that, the only problem is when you need to do some work for yourself… it always drags out and your list of projects for other people expands greatly!

Cobra, You are doing nice work and building a growing shop area
Before i finally built my new workshop last year I was working under a carport and constantly moving and storing all my tools in a small shed. Still had tons of fun and looked forward to every moment I cold spend in that crowded carport As your fun and interest in your shop grows, so will your shop.
Now I am just able to close the shop door when I finish working and not have to move everything.

-- Every step of each project is considered my masterpiece because I want the finished product to reflect the quality of my work.

Thanks for becoming my LJ buddy, I am putting you on my list too. It sounds like you are really enjoying woodworking and it looks like your hobby is becoming more of a profession than a hobby. It’s great when folks appreciate what you do and want to buy your stuff. I don’t sell anything anymore as I am not producing enough to make it worthwhile. I see from your projects that you are an accomplished woodworker. I was also pleased to see that you are restoring some nice pieces. A lot of very well made and beautiful furniture winds up on the dump because it looks worn and maybe has some damage, but deserves a better fate. Keep up the good work.

This is great fun, ain’t it? I was down in your area, it’s been awhile. I was at Gulfport, we went to Biloxi, Keesler actually, for some beers. That’s a nice place.

-- what a long, strange trip it's been...

Have your say...
