IS THIS A HOBBY THAT PAYS WELL? OR A RETIREMENT JOB HE LOVES?

  “I can make a hundred dollars or a thousand with my Woodmasters — it’s up to me”

Larry always wanted a log cabin, now he's built one. He sawed out the board then turned them into log cabin siding on his Woodmaster.

“I’m retired and I can’t just sit around. I got my Woodmasters because I have a hobby of making things. You can definitely make money with a Woodmaster. These machines can pay for themselves. You can make a hundred dollars or a thousand, it’s up to you.”

I always wanted a log cabin and now I’m building one. It’s 40’ x 32’. Part of it is for the grandkids when they come and visit. The other part is my wood shop.

I was a lineman for 42 years and I salvaged the good pieces of poles we replaced. I sawed them with my TimberKing Sawmill and made log cabin siding with my Woodmaster Molder/Planer. I have two — my 12” Woodmaster 712 and my 18” Woodmaster 718.

 

You might call this Larry's "man cave" -- he calls it his workshop, set up with his 712 and 718 Woodmaster Molder/Planers.

“As soon as I’d set it up as a planer, somebody’d want molding”

Larry (right) and his son-in-law saw out some boards on Larry's TimberKing sawmill. Next step: drying, then planing on his Woodmaster.

I needed a planer and I’d always heard about Woodmaster. At first I was just planing. I set up my 718 as a dedicated planer. As soon as I’d get it set up for planing, somebody would come in and want molding and I’d switch it over to a molding machine. That’s when I got the 712 — now I have a dedicated planer and a dedicated molder.

"My TimberKing mill paid for itself 2 times over," says Larry. And when it comes to his Woodmasters, "You can make good money making molding with a Woodmaster."

The power poles I sawed and put through my Woodmasters were pretty soft but the maple was dry and super-hard. But these machines take off a lot of wood with no problems, no complaints at all. They have plenty of power. The log cabin pattern knives take off a lot of wood and you need a good vacuum system. Mine works real well.

Here's a photo of the interior of Larry's shop. Note the walls and ceiling are wood paneling. Lots of room for Larry's many projects.

“I learn by doing”

I’m one of those guys who learns by doing. I got the log cabin knives and put them in wrong. I called Woodmaster and they told me just how to do it right. Now they work like clockwork. I get knives and parts from Woodmaster, anything I’d ever want, in no time at all. Woodmaster’s customer service is outstanding.

I’ve used a lot of planers in my lifetime and the Woodmaster’s the best I’ve ever used. They’re durable, simple, and there’s not a lot that can go wrong.”
