Well guys, it is with some sadness that I have to announce I am giving up the business. Work has been slow recently and after a fall from a ladder I jarred my back and had to have some time off. Money is tight and rather than delve into my pension I am getting a job again, light duties but not woodworking. I shall downsize and continue wood working as a hobby again, small stuff of course to keep my hand in. Will still be visiting the forum to keep up to date of course.

Sorry to hear that Mailee, that is the problem when you work for yourself something like the fall can knock you for six. Hope all goes well on the employment front and hope to see some of what you are able to produce on here.

Hi Mailee, we will miss your photo's and write ups of your work, hopefully you will be fully recovered soon.

Your wood work will be even more impressive when you just do it for yourself and not to satisfy a customer

I too worked for myself for about 3 years and had to call it a day nearly 10 years ago and find a job, and looking back at it, it was the right thing to do at the right time. My furniture making has gone a lot further now that I make things for the sheer enjoyment of it rather than trying to make a living from it.
