Title: Work Day
Post by: DonCW on December 19, 2015, 11:42:05 AM
I spent the last 14 years earning my living creating CAD drafting of custom cabinets and millwork. The attached is a simple illustration of a base cabinet including counter top. I'll be fully retired employee in April 2016, after that I'm going to try do the same type of work, but on a contract basis.

Great example of your past 14 years of work Don.  I very much like this kind of stuff-- 3D Modeling, used and presented for construction.

Congratulations! and enjoy the upcoming "retirement" Don.  -Alvin

p.s.:  I think this addresses the question presented the other day in another Forum Board "Do you use TC for Serious Professional Use (http://forums.turbocad.com/index.php/topic,17959.0.html)".

Yes, we can make a living using TurboCAD professionally.

Nice clean drawing, Don.

I'm convinced that retirement is Man's natural state. Enjoy!

"I'm convinced that retirement is Man's natural state. Enjoy!"

Agreed. Just staying that way is a challenge. I keep taking on new projects...... I suppose my grave will be where I actually retire for good.

Thanks for your comments on retirement. So far it's been good, I was able to spend the time and learn new TC tools to model a few woodworking planes and a combination square, then strip down 2 lamp tables and a coffee table to bare wood refinish them. Too keep myself busy and useful in the future, I'm going to try and get some CAD drafting on a contract basis and do the work on my hours & terms. I'll just have to wait and see what happens when the time comes, so far it seems to be hard get contacts, but I'm working at it.

Don, I can sure relate. Except to the retire part, I'm still at it.
If you haven't already, wait'll you discover 3D PDFs...!
You'll like being an independent contractor.
Congrats on the big shift!

Nice draft drawing . Congats on retirement  , but if you are going to keep working at your own pace ,
is that not the same as being self employed  .  ;)

Good attention to fabrication details.

Do you use the Furniture Maker Plugin?  I notice that group's not very busy.  Just checked... I don't even see it on the TurboCAD web site.  Moot question, I guess.
