Is up at my blog!

So, how much would it take to get you to quit woodworking cold turkey? :D

That is a tough question. But, I could do it.
I did it with racing and no one even offered to give me anything to quit. I just got fustrated and burned- out with it.
Went to two or three races just to watch and didn't regret my decision one bit. I could do it with wood working too,especially for $10,000,000. :-D

I voted for the $10,000,000.00 but for me it would probably be
a health issue. No longer able to handle wood, bad vision, etc.

Here is the comment I left on TT's website:

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

Too many things to do around the house that are cheaper to do it myself than hire someone. Money isn't everything!

True, but it is running a close second to what ever is in first. :D

Yup, money doesn't buy happiness but lack of money causes negative (and a few positive) stresses in life (and relationships) that would otherwise be absent.

My fee would probably be in the 1,000,000 - 10,000,000 range... and I'd find another hobby that I used my hands with that I enjoy... like sailing my new boat I'd be buying :)

Interesting question
