Jim C,

I found your thread to be interesting and have been watching it for the past two weeks….......Well over 400 views and only 5 responses. I guess people don’t like to talk about their careers.

I spent 4 years in the Marine Corps straight out of High School in 1967. Two tours in Viet Nam. After getting out of the Corps in 1971, I spent the next 9 years working various jobs (mostly Sales) before I bought a small town hardware store in 1980. 5 years later I decided to start my own Custom Woodworking Business and did woodworking professionally until I retired earlier this year.

The only regret I might have is that I didn’t make start my woodworking business earlier; but then again, I will have to admit the experience I gained by working the other jobs first helped me tremendously when I started my own business.

Would I do it all over again? most definitely…..wouldn’t change any of it.
