    I work at a Hot rod shop as a Fabricator ( anything metal ). So, I pretty much get to play arts and crafts all day long with other peoples cars.
     
  4. Own and operate engine machine shop with restoration shop on the side. I've been looking for a job for 31 years but I don't play well with others!!!!! I listen to my radio station all day long,build race engines and restore muscle cars. I'm not having a mid life crisis I just refuse to grow up!!!!!

    I just recently started installing high end staircases in homes. Before this I'd been building houses. I also have my own woodworking business. I build custom furniture for people who know there's more options than what's in their
    Ikea catalog.

    I work for a major chemical manufacturer. The one with the blue oval that goes round and round the track on Sundays.

    I make nylon filament. You can think of me when you brush your teeth, paint your house or your toenails.
