I'd like to be able to focus on woodworking about one-half time, with the following little details:
(1) First, my passion for woodworking is driven by a desire to show off the beauty of the wood that I work with.
(2) Build a dedicated shop given what I've learned in the basement and garage over the years.
(3) Be able to travel to a variety of places, talk to local craftsmen, and bring back local woods for projects.
(4) Get really good at hand tools and arcane joinery - gives you a feel for working with rather than against wood.
(5) Make multiple heirloom projects for all of the grandkids.  Make a few projects that would be valued long after I'm gone.

Combined with other non-woodworking interests in the other 150% of my time, I think I could stay busy :).

I saw the film called the Bucket List, it was touching and funny..

I've got no real reason to make a Bucket list, I have some things I'd like to do, I work doing practical maintenance for several building and courtyards in a Scandinavian city. I'm mostly on my own, but the change of scene from place to place means I'm never really bored.

I guess on item on mu bucket list is to make some useful contributions using my Festool setup, getting a small shop set up to aid in that. I have other interests that a cultivate in turn, and though it might seem like I'm aiming too broad, by keeping the same subjects simmering away over the years I make some real progress, hardly noticing it myself, so the you would say I'm not straining away in my daily life driven by blind ambition.. Slow and steady progress. I don't worry too much about what I manage to get done, but cultivating a positive internal personal energy, focused friendly open, and quietly productive gets me through a  Bucket list that I don't even have written down and never look at..
