Well it been over a year since I was last on this forum and I appologise to each and everyone of you. It's a long story but here are a few of the details.
The company I was working for went belly up and I found myself like so many others looking for work. it's a tough job market and especialy tough for someone as senior as I am most companies want younger folks not someone who is hopeing to retire in a few years. after going through much on my savings and my 401K turn into a 101K I was geting very desperate. I got my Commercial Drivers License and started driving an 18 wheeler cross country. Makes it hard to spend time on the internet or get any shop time in. So I took stock in my situation and with my wifes blessing I decided to end my trucking days and started out doing woodworking full time. I picked a relativly uncrowded aspect on woodworking in the Phoenix area. Restoring antiques. I am happy to report that my shop is overflowing and I have a backlog of work. I've gotten so busy that I had to expand and my shop now includes all of my three car garage. I'll post some pictures later of some of the pieces I've done. Well I've bored you all to long and all I can say is I'm glad to be back.
