What do you do for a living?



What do you folks do for a living? I know that some actually woodwork for a living . . . but what do the rest of you do to pay for the new tools in the shed or garage?

I’ll start . . . I'm a Graphic Designer by training. I have been working with wood for... 25 years or so. Started when I was young and watching my grandpa and uncle and just grew from there. Nothing is better than stepping into my shop (2 car garage) and smelling the wood. Ahhh. Really, is there anything better than the smell of fresh cut cherry?

I would like to eventually have some of my woodworking projects bring in a few extra $$$ . . . but I have to get good first :).

I'm a U.S. Postal Carrier. Through woodworking I can afford custom furniture that I could not otherwise. Over 30 years I've slowly accumulated tools and experience that allow me to explore various styles of furniture. Looking around my frontroom I think most would be struck by the lack of a themee other then the craftmanship needed to exicute each piece
