Since then my tools and skills have grown, as well as my shop space. Now I work as a project manager for Architectural Arts, a commercial millwork company in Des Moines, Iowa. Woodworking is once again a hobby. My work has grown in quality and design much more since I no longer have to justify my income based on my work. I find I enjoy woodworking much more as a hobby than a profession.
-- Peace be with you!
