Jim Scott didn't want to spend his retirement from the Department of Transportation staring at a television screen. So after his Stratford home wood shop was taken over by his wife Adele for crafting, he decided to reclaim his hobby. He started making cedar chests for his granddaughters, daughter and daughter-in-laws, and then he decided to venture into other woodworking territory. From cedar basement bars to headboards and tables, he has done it all. "I'm retired, and I had to have something to do," he smiled.
