StrawBerry Ridge Is a Great Central Florida 55+ Community Where You Can Enjoy the Benefits of Woodworking in Retirement

For some older adults, one of the downsides of retiring to Florida is leaving behind the well-equipped woodworking shop they may have built and stocked with tools over the years. In fact, for many of these craftsmen, spending more time creating furniture or knickknacks by hand is part of the allure of retirement. Fortunately, there’s a terrific Central Florida community for active adults 55 and older that has a spacious, fully equipped woodworking shop available for residents’ use. It’s StrawBerry Ridge, located just outside of Tampa, FL. Whether you’re an avid wood crafter already or you’ve been thinking about taking up woodworking in retirement, you owe it to yourself to see the facilities at this beautiful community.

There are many benefits of pursuing woodworking in retirement, including keeping the mind and body active. Moreover, some retirees are able to generate income by selling their handiwork online or at a craft show, of which there are many to be found throughout Central Florida. However, one of the top benefits of woodworking at StrawBerry Ridge is the camaraderie our residents enjoy when sharing their hobby with neighbors.

In fact, there’s a Woodworkers Club that offers classes to help members hone their skills. The group also organizes fundraisers to support the club’s annual Christmas Toy Program, in which members make pull toys, dollhouses, and other wooden toys to give to children in need. The club also uses funds to provide store-bought toys for the giveaway.
