    From Hobby To Business....

    Hello everyone....

    I thought I'd share our humble little shop with all my fellow wood workers. What started as a hobby has grown into a fully blown shop. Sometimes I think how nice it was when it was simple and a hobby. Now things are just much more complicated and busy. Don't wish for things because they may come true.

    Here's a link to our Shop Tour -

    Hi Joe, Looks to be an interesting business. It's always good when you get to do what you like doing. I really like the 4 head CNC, that's quite a machine. I've been collecting parts to build another, hadn't thought of putting multiple spindles on it, but would make sense. Can you post a video of it at work some time?

    Looks like you've got quite the setup there, Joe. I think I've stumbled upon your site in past web searches. As a pool-playing woodturner, making my own cue has been a thought in the back of my mind, but with my regular woodturning lathe, I also figure it'd be a good way to take some great wood and turn it into a mediocre cue.
