Welcome, catfish - I like the screen name. If you've been at it all your life, we may change your name to "bus driver" because you'll be taking the rest of us to school. I think you'll like it here, there's some really nice folks that contribute to the success of this forum. And, we like pictures (probably because most of us can't read), so post some photos of your favorite woodworking successes.

Welcome, Catfish ... so is this a career w/ you or a hobby ? Either way, you'll find this a good place.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

yes this has turned into a career for me and my wife, she helps me alot, we have just added a woodmaster 718 to our shop and have made a few contacts on molding and trim orders. i was a trucker for 16 yrs until i got a lung disease in 05 and was forced to retire, over the last yr or so my lung functions have been a lot better for me and i had to get back to doing something, i started out making a dinning table for us and then before i knew it people wanted me to make one for them. i have sold many to a local furniture store with over 14 chairs also (which i hate to make) lol. but the love of wood has always been there for me, from watching my grandfather build houses to watching him build shadow boxes, i have been looking for that perfect piece every since. as far as me driving a bus, i don't think so, that's what i love with forums like these, you can learn so much from each other. and i feel like i could learn a lot more. so thank you all for making me feel at home here.
