I retired in 2010 and decided to teach myself woodworking. In the summer of 2011, I bought the cheapest lathe I could find, to see what wood turning was all about. The result was a set of cups I gave a s Christmas gifts to family.

I’m still working on learning the skills, but I’m having a lot more fun getting paid a pension for not working than I ever did for working.

Yeah, you retired people get all the breaks. Yes, I’m smiling when I say this. Neat looking goblets.

Nice goblets. I agree, I also retired in 2010 and my only regret is that I didn’t retire 40 years earlier :-)). It sure is nice staying home and doing what you like AND getting paid for it. The only down side is that you have to get old to retire.

Congrats on your retirement. Now you can throw away that clock and have all the fun ya want. It’s a beautiful thing, retirement is.
