GREENCASTLE, Pa. - In 1990, Aubrey Wright wasn't sure he'd have enough money to support himself as he retired from teaching at Wilson College.
He was prepared to let his hobby - woodcarving - blossom into a new career.
Wright's woodcarving could be considered a part-time job - he works on it 20 hours a week - but he still considers himself a hobbyist.
The hobby pays for itself and provides supplemental income for the 76-year-old retiree. Wright was an auto body repairman and later taught how to calculate automobile damage estimates.
Wright's woodworking also kept his mind occupied following the 1987 death of his wife.
To develop a customer base, Wright attends Boonsborough Days, Jonathan Hager Frontier Craft Days and the Western Maryland Blues Fest. His work has been displayed at the Mansion House Art Center in City Park.
