Hi Joe

I see you like making poker tables you may also want to check out the NYWS (Norm's show on the PBS) he just made a poker table that was a real knock out :)

It is one of the best poker tables I have seen and you can get the full set of plans from him...

But you know Norm he has pockets full of money and one hell of a work shop with free tools all over the place.... :)
And one of the best shop vac. I have seen ,,,I don't think I have every seen any saw dust on the floor or on the tools, must be magic :) or the 10 or 15 people with dust pans and a brush or two...behind the cam.

Have a good day Joe

Bj :)

Hi Joe
Retirement is great no more getting up at 4:00AM and getting home a 10:00 PM
and having a cold dinner and doing the same thing day after day.
The money was great but you can't take it with you.. :)
I retired at 55 and it took me a year to get into the time off.
I sold my business when the BOSS said "me or your DAM company.." :(
That did for me, I forgot for a long time what I was working for but she told me real quick that she was feed up with it and so was I at that point.

Now it's nice to have dinner at 6:00 after working in the shop most of the day making saw dust and firewood... hahahahaha but working only if I want to ....not because I need to.
Now the best thing in my day is when the grand kids drop by and we can make a bird house or feeder , I was a real ass hole when my kids where small ,I would see them in the shop making something and say what the hell are you doing ! ,retirement has mellow me out and now I love it when the kids want to make something out of wood.

"Retirement is great"
Enjoy it like I do :)
Just a side note don't fall in to the trap of making crafts to sell it will kill the joy of working in the wood shop... I did it for a bit and found myself making tons of Xmax. toys and it turned in to a job and I lost the joy of wood working for a bit.
"Retirement is great"
I don't need a job anymore I have put my time in... :) :) :)
And my BOSS has become my best friend again like it was long ago.


Have a good one Joe

Bj :)
