Im Loving It
Happy To Find This Post. Im A Carpenter ,cs That Recently Went Out On My Own After 17 Years In A Family Shop. It Was/is Ugly But I Am Happier Than Ever. I Was Left With Limited Tooling And Had To Basically Start From Scratch, But Im Doing Okay. My Latest Hurdle Was A Small Cabinetry Job I Took Knowing I Lacked The Tools To Do It. I Improvised A Raised Panel Job On My Table Saw And Made Enuogh To Buy A New Shaper For The Next (fingers Crossed) Job.

I am from Oz. Sometimes you have to get out of your comfort zone. bite off more then you can chew, then chew like mad.

The first time I heard that would be more then thirty years ago, it was on an interview with the flamboyant son of one of Australia's top business people ( sory I canot spel Entrapeur proply ) ( lol )


The Guys name was Kerry Packer and his son James and Rupert Murdoch's son Lachlan get on really well. encouraged by their old bull fathers who were mortal enemies in Oz.

Hi there,

I got a few tools - saws, levels, chisels, mallets, screwdrivers, hammers, shovels, brooms. Got a few machines, too - planes, vises, drills, braces, clamps, miter boxes. Then there're the motorized machines - circular saws, jig saws, scroll saws, table saw, drill press, grinders, lathes, vacuum. Got a few machines with engines, too - lawnmower, chain saws, jeep, cars, mopeds.
Mallets and chisels sure make nice mortises, don't they?

Welcome to the site Ed!
I started on my own petty much the same way. It's not easy but if you work hard and don't give up it will grow.
