Every ones ideas gives me more to ponder on, thanks. I did not mention my project ideas which are a small storage shed to start with, approx 12x20 for a starter then a small cabin approx 16x24. I am sure this will be a learning experience with me making mistakes along the way. I will be retiring from my repair business of 45 yrs repairing ag tractors. Love woodworking and am looking for a new hobby and challenge. If I stay to close to the house the wife would find jobs I would rather not do, LOL.

And unfortunately once you do a job, its yours to do next time. ask me how I know. lol Is there any one in your area than can fill your niche? You can practice up for retirement by telling some would be customers NO, I won't be able to repair your machine. Because they'll keep coming, and asking, and begging and giving you a hard luck story even after the out of the business sign goes up. gobble

I used to own a WoodMizersawmill. I bought it used on a fishing trip in Canada for my own use. Well my own use started out just fine until someone saw me using it and then the wook came flooding in.I did custom sawing for 16 years after that and enjoyed every min of it. At times it could be a little trying but I met and made many good friends over the years. Mine could saw a 30 inch by 21 foot log but I have sawed crane mats that were 26 foot long. Over the years I saw material for boats, ash for a car restorer, farm wagons and several arch bridges. I sawed a lot of sasafrass for a guys basement which smelled like working in a root beer bottle. I miss doing it and the smells of the different woods. Several times a year I resawed big beams down to 2 inch thick planks for a company which made one of a kind pieces of furniture. These beams were all old growth timber. So be prepared for a lot of work Enjoy it
