Just built 24 serving trays for a small business, 13.375” X 17.5” with handles on each end. It brings back memories of working in a factory. Got to remember next time to make extra parts for the ones that get screwed up,Opps that’s not suppose to happen. it’s not fun to set up the saw or any other machine for just a couple of parts to make up the order. Repetive work ? After a time you can do it in your sleep !
Don’t get me wrong, I love what I do, Enjoy my woodworking and Thank GOD for giving me the ability.

I just put in another 12 hour day making rustic tables for upcoming shows, events and galleries.
I like it, but I don’t know why.

Making more than one moves it from a hobby to work! But if it is for a paying customer, that makes it okay!!

If you truly like what you are doing and want to make a good living, then making more than one moves it from a hobby to a profession.
