I have been working with wood most of my life, except for a short ( 20 years) stay in the Army. I have a 2 car garage for a workshop. I only come out to mow the lawn or to go fishing. I love the smell of wood, and seeing what a few flat boards can be turned into. While at the same having all of that fun !
Been retired for almost 10 years. So many people I have known who retired and there only hobby was drinking. Most didn't live very long. I make sawdust and it keeps me out of the bar before 5.00 PM. Works fine so far.
