Myself, I am not a pro so maybe this is not what you want to hear either.
I am not sure I am all cranked up to be a pro so I can make a living at it, but I would like to think that I think outside the box and do some very custom, very unique projects. Building a train shaped cradle for my daughter for instance, or building a heart shaped crib complete with lovetails instead of dovetails. To less of an extent, my highly detailed wooden models could be included as unique as well.
I guess my frustration with woodworking is that some of these very unique woodworking projects go largely unnoticed.
If my dream was to become reality (and please don't laugh too hard), it would be to build that heart shaped crib, complete with lovetails and heart shaped spindles, and then donate it to the Make a Wish Foundation for auction. I think with that sort of exposure, a winning bid would be high and thus a dying child's final wish could be granted, the winning bidder would have one of a kind item, and I would get the recognition for building something high end and unique.
Typed out it sounds arrogant, but I put a lot of time and thought into what I do, and the handwork stuff like this requires is pretty skillful. I guess in this respect I am just the starving artist who wishes to be discovered. If I could help a child out via my style of woodworking, it would be my holy grail of woodworking.
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
