How are is does your work differ from other woodworkers?
Cause I am old, crotchety, mean nasty and ill tempered!~ I am self taught and have every scar and screwed up project to prove it! I have no 'edumacated' sense what is 'proper' but know what makes sense to me [till I learn by error] I get true joy and pleasure from my work [hah like that makes me sumptin spezial]
How did you get your start in woodworking?
No one else would hire me to do anything. Wood butchery was my sole outlet with the $$$$ I had available. Started selling at local school craft shows and learned about the 'Peter Principle'

Why did you choose to build humidors?
A local schmuck [who just bought a wood business] had some exotic woods he offered to supply if I made humidors that he would sell and we would split 50/50 on sales.
Cigar people will spend big $$$ sometimes

What is your biggest challenge in a niche market?
Getting enough qualified inquires.

What is your favorite part of the process?
Building, designing, wood finding?
Spending the money I get paid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  

Which tool on your bench is irreplaceable?
My WORKSHOP computer for Email inquiries!!!!!!!!

How do you keep woodworking interesting and fulfilling?
Listening to my wife and paying bills
