I have a great idea for some of you to make money on your homesteads! Some of you may have already thought of this or even done it but I haven't seen it mentioned here before. One thing I was thinking about this mornign is I would LOVE to have somebody on a homestead or farm teach me about simple carpentry! If somebody would have a workshop like on a Saturday morning or even a series of workshops over a month's time, where women could come and learn basic carpentry skills, maybe build something simple like a really really simple small bookcase, small table or bread box, and learn the basics or measuring, sawing, etc. I think a lot of women would sign up....even "city" women, because most women would like to know how to do the basic stuff... What I would really really love to learn is basic carpentry using HAND TOOLS only! or maybe rechargeable tools. I am afraid of circular saws and most all power tools (maybe it was because my dad was a very good carpenter all the time I was growing up and once got in a bad tangle with a table saw----500 stitches later and they saved his hand---and once cut the end of another finger off with a circular saw)....but I would love to learn carpentry the OLD TIME WAY.... Just thought this might give some of you some ideas about some kind of worships you could have....one for women....one for older kids....one for younger kids.... You could charge a fee plus have them pay for their own materials and it could mean a good bit for a Saturday morning's time. You could advertise on bulletin boards at grocery stores, building supply houses, hardware stores (and even a beauty shops for the ones for women!!!) and I bet you could get plenty of people eager to learn!!!!
