Retirement for Garald Edwards of Nevis simply meant a career change.

The lifelong trucker and mechanic actually retired his Skil saw and purchased some new woodworking tools six years ago.


A new career was born.

Every Saturday Garald and sometimes wife Sharon set up at the Nevis Farmers Market and sell their wares.

The couple makes flower planters out of landscape timbers. Garald is the cutter. Sharon does much of the assembly.
