Well not yet. But I'm hoping that it will happen soon. Life has thrown me a major curve and due to chronic health issues, it's getting tough to work in the trades. I'm a licensed residential builder, but I don't build homes. I do general repairs, flooring, light remodeling, decks, flooring, etc. Well over the past week or so I've done a couple woodworking projects for clients that have come out very nice. One of the clients owns a small fairly high-end furniture store about a mile from my house. He liked the last project I did for him and he asked me about doing another one. It's for a customer of his and he said that if it comes out nice, he might have me make some more for him to sell in his store. If those go, he'll order more.
This is good news, I enjoy woodworking and it is therapeutic for me both physically and mentally. It's not nearly as physically demanding as working in the trades. I just finished getting rid of a bunch of stuff out of my basement and I'm thinking that I may turn it into a full blown shop. I want to make a spray booth that I can vent outside and get a DC system to keep the dust to a minimum. This could be the start of a new chapter in my life. This is what I have now and I'll post pics as it progresses.
Here's about 1100 square feet of heaven which should make a pretty substantial shop. And the good part is that it's a walkout so it makes large pieces much easier to get in and out without having to deal with stairs.
