Woodworking hobby turns to cash
Woodworking hobby and retirement – or a job change?
These works of art/woodworking were done by a retired economist who worked in that discipline for 4 decades.
Located in Accra , Ghana, Desi Lopez builds furniture on demand, using a variety of African hardwoods.
This photo shows the frame of a sofa he made. His wife, acting as the company seamstress, is making a set of cushions for it. It’ll be soft and comfy and oh so attractive.
The floor under the bed can easily be cleaned. I think I might want to drop a few pounds before I slept on it.
A picnic table on the patio, right where it belongs.
And perhaps a somewhat more practical effort – a closet with maximum storage ability.
Finally one of his more artistic efforts.
He used SketchList 3D to create the design and the plans. With reports from the software, he was able to make the projects in his shop. People love his work. The photos show a wide range of capabilities both in artistic design and pragmatic woodworking skills.
Thank you for sharing the fruits of your wonderful woodworking hobby.
On a much more modest scale, perhaps to encourage you, here is a story about a project I dug up while on vacation.
