I have been working wood for more than 35 years, creating custom furniture and cabinets. My company was eight people strong until the crash of 2008, at which time our very wealthy clientele chose to panic over a net worth that might have dropped from eight hundred million to seven hundred million. Most of them mothballed their projects and sent everyone home.
