I grew up playing around in the shop as my mother was a fairly talented birdcarver and taught classes at the summer camp that was right next door to our house in NH...then we moved and no shop to play in any more...

Now I am lucky enough to have boyfriend who likes to woodwork and decided to set up a shop in the garage...which of course I get to go and play in again...lucky me! Except when we argue over who gets to keep particular scraps of wood, that is. Now our hobby is turning into a side business and we are setting up the shop for real and learning a lot from lurking on LJ about marketing, selling and still enjoying working with the wood...

I like your work… hope you can run a business and not feel like it is work…. that is the key… enjoy and play safe…

@degoose…now that is a tough goal isn’t it! For right now the woodworking is a side business but it is also the long term early “retirement” plan for Jay…so we are hoping to build it up slowly over the next years…

And btw your work is fantastic I have been looking at it since joining LJ, you really are a master craftsman…actually I want to “sign up” for your class you have going on…
