Hello from Minnesota

I have recently retired after 29 years with a major newspaper, I'm debating whether I want to find a part time job or just spend time making sawdust. I recently purchased a Porter Cable 4212 dovetail jig and got online to find some projects to use it on.That led me here and I found a BUNCH of helpful hints and appeared to be a lot of support for people having issues or questions. I have never made anything exotic but I take pride in the things I do make so I hope I'll be able to fit in.

Given a choice between finding a part time job or making saw dust?
The part time job will win every time.

Welcome aboard.

Why not create a part time job making sawdust?

I have heard this exact thing from a bunch of relatives.I'm just not sure there is a demand for wood car carriers and pull toys.
