    Is there money in woodworking?

    Thread Starter: Travis Conner

    Other than making kitchen cabinets, is there money in it? I've always kept it as a hobby. I once heard of a guy who won the lottery say he's going to keep wood working until the money runs out. Lol

    Radial arm saw

    Radial arm saws can cut wider boards, but they really can't crosscut full width sheet goods. You may want to consider a track saw to help with cutting

    Radial arm saw
