    I wonder of you could make a living in such an environment? I'd love to try something like this as a woodworker.
  • Robert Nunnally 6y

    I am anything but an expert, but apparently some make a living and some make a nice "second living" to go with a day job. I'm sure some would tell you they don't make a living at all, but that's true of many things.

    I could totally imagine you semi-retiring to be a woodworker. You don't need any classes, but I'll bet you could add to your credential set by finding a class in woodworking. I think the secret might be to get luthier training, as a good luthier is, I believe, a precious commodity. Punctuality seems to be a hard challenge in that skilled industry.

    I have identified a couple of classes I'd like to take. Rather expensive but residential for a week and would learn a great deal.

    That sounds great! you know, for a week=long thing, one of my friends recommended the Penland School of the Arts in NC, which is chock full of just such classes.

    Interesting site. One class is called Iron/Fire/Rock 'n' Roll. Sounds fun. The class I found is near Waco. Another is in Pennsylvania. Such things abound apparently.

    You know, Muskogee's community college is very craft oriented. I wonder if it might have something closer to home for you. Waco would be fun. Despite the knock it gets, there are actually lots of cool things to do near Waco.
