Praise the LORD , praise the LORD brother Cletus . The Lord did this for me too . three years ago in may I started my own business too . You play those wonderful gospel tunes as you work on the wood work . OH just praise the Lord and the knee should heal up in time .
man. you know how some times God does it so good you just cant not speak on it. and you know this is just to good to be from anywhere/anywho but The Almighty. well, for me that day came today. I am tired of working myself down so tired i dont want to do anything on my day off. and really not moving forward in life to much, just barely making it. my knee cant take much more of it anyway. hurts to even bend it some days, let alone walk and even more carry heavy loads, which i do and dont ask for light duty because my knee hurts. some days they call me gimpy. I grew up in a wood shop. know my way around a wood shop. know how to make furniture like coffee tables, entertainment centers/consoles, end tables, console tables, shadow boxes, towel racks, those little cabinet shelves they hang over a toilet, magazine racks. little fancy stuff to. knick knacks. lamps. i can make kitchen and bathroom cabinets too. I just couldnt afford the tools/machines. i had a few but i was limited on what i could build with my skills. this fella i been doing some work for here and there who just so happens to be a beloved brother, and i even found out he is a pastor of a church... and the fellowship is righteous too. well he knew these people thru his church and someone in their family died. he just so happened to have a wood shop and they needed the stuff gone just as much as i needed it. the price was real right. i bought a radial arm saw for 175, with a bench, a fence, and a stack of blades for it... new ones. there was over 175 bucks in blades alone. the saw new is over 2 grand. i bought a band saw too. so now i can cut down trees or acquire logs and turn timber to lumber, even butterfly the grain and slap some tung oil on it and puuurdy puuurdy. and it come with a hand full of blades. these are industrial machines, not harbor freight stuff, though that stuff works this is awesome machines. a scroll saw with a stand too. 2 hand held sanders both for less than the cost of either brand new. I got a big box of fancy fancy wood accents for free. little hinges even fancy locks and clasps. i got a few corner clamps for making picture frames or the like. a whole arm full of dowel rods of different thicknesses and material, some made of poplar. nice nice stuff. I got an adjustable roller for long boards hanging off the bench when cutting... and a metal cabinet with a wood top. I will go dumpster diving at the carpet store in town to cover the table top of this to not scratch fine finish materials as I work. this stuff with what i already had... Cletus is in business. For myself. keep the hours I want. Listen to the music I want... glory glory Hallelujah... in my shop. I have no other to thank for this than God. tomorrow i go to get the big stuff and set up my shop. all I lack right now is paint and wood stain... but guess what, i dont need it right now, LOL. My dream of what i can do to not work for someone else is here. Thank God!!!
edit: and i tested the saws. cuts thru wood like butter.
re-edit: I am gonna make rocking chairs too.
