I added a projects to my favorites today and thought I would review what I have put there in the last few years. That was amazing. Sometimes I lose track of the quality of the work here. I see great stuff every day, but the ones I consider real...

I am an elementary school teacher. I just moved to 2nd grade after 16 years in middle school. I have been working with wood for 30 years. I have worked in home construction and remodeling. I mostly do projects for my own home. In the past 3 years, I have returned to turning and like to use exotic wood to turn plates and bowls. I have begun to sell at craft shows in our local area. When I retire in 4 years, I plan to be found in my shop most of the time. I now put in about 20 hours a week there. I still love teaching, but woodworking gives me a different sense of accomplishment. I have been happily sucked into the world of box making. And I thought Turning was addictive. The great examples on LumberJocks keep me inspired.
A little update, 1/13/13 Put my lathe in storage and am now working on somewhere around my 500th box, plus about that many cutting boards. Graduated to ART shows and Galleries. I love going on wood buying trips or looking on the internet. One year to retire, but still enjoying the job.
-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!
