Thank you all! We bought a CO2 laser to help us with woodworking as we got closer to retirement, but as it turns out – my husband Steve (he’s a wood carver as well) seems to be no where near a slowing point and there is more demand for the laser work as well. Best of both worlds so to speak. We find time to sneak in some of our own projects from time to time or make great use of R & D! This was one of those special projects that I had wanted to do for several years and finally made time for it!
As I mentioned earlier, we have two shops – His (all wood tools) and Hers (computer and laser)

My shop is 7’ X 11’ (5 lbs of sugar in a 10 lb bag) and Steve’s is 19.5’ X 24’.
We have been self employed for over 20 yrs and couldn’t imagine doing any thing else!
