Quick Poll

It’s no secret – woodworkers love woodworking.

However, everyone has a breaking point – some point at which they could be convinced to give up something – even their beloved woodworking.

Imagine if you will, a multi-gazillionaire were to come to your town to make you an offer to give up the craft.  Cold turkey. A truck and a group of workmen would be dispatched to clear your shop of all of your tools and prized timbers, and, once completed, you would get a  briefcase full of cash to use as you wish.  With one caveat.

The terms of this agreement  would be severe –  absolutely no woodworking at all.  If you were to even read a woodworking magazine, participate in an online woodworking forum, even touch a piece of wood that you intended to cut, shape, drill or do other acts of mayhem on – you would have to surrender the money and everything you bought with it.

Would you do it, and for how much?

  1. More money only means more to spend on more tools! However, health may take me out of the shop before I want to leave.

  2. With some of the stupid cuts I’ve been making lately, I’d pay them I think!
    (My shop in the only place I have total say, so I can’t give it up!) LOL

  3. I’d take up metalwork or something else … big money could ensure I could buy the tools I needed.

    Wood is an awesome medium, but I could have fun with other things as well. Especially if I could afford the tools:-D
