Operate "trophy and engraving" business. Since 1984, it's been a living. Probably won't retire til I'm forced to.

Have 450 square feet of shop and some storage space at my business. Own most of the power tools one might need and some one only wants.
One thing I believe: you really can't enjoy a woodworking hobby without knowing and using hand tools.
