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?
