Looking for Fics with Carpenter! or Successful!Xander

Hi - I'm a huge fan of Successful!Xander fics, particularly when he's become successful working as a carpenter or in construction or with his hands in general. 

I'm looking for two specific fics right now, but I'd love to read more that are similar.  The first fic that I'm looking for features Xander with his own custom furniture business.  He's really successful but doesn't spend time with the scoobies anymore - Spike finds him after seeing him at some kind of Wolfram and Hart party.  The second fic I'm looking for features Xander with a custom weapons business - the story happens in Sunnydale and I think I remember the gang being very dismissive of Xander's talent except for Tara and Anya.

Thanks for your help and I look forward to reading your recommendations!

The first one is Working Man by Cleey I think and the second one is by wmgrg - will grab some links for you.

No worries - it's one of my absolute faves so finding it for you gave me an excuse to read it again!!

Repossession by Lazuli has Xander as an extremely successful construction manager. It is a wonderful long and at times harsh ride but *so* worth the read. (Lazuli has her own site)

And this is a bit cheeky as the next two are mine... but have you read the Five Rings series... It doesn't focus on Xander's carpentry per se but might be of interest. There are seven arcs to the story, Collective Experience focusing most on his construction work.

The Ghost in the Machine has him working wood at the coven in England also and though is a WiP may be worth your while.

Cheers

And you will be happy (hopefully) to know it is back on the writing list... maybe a day or two out from a new entry.
