Retired with a small workshop in my half of the garage with a
small dust collector that exhausts to the outside. Table saw,
one small bandsaw, one that can resaw 12" wood, a lathe,a
drill press, planer, jointer and assorted small tools. Have been
making sawdust for 61 years and counting. Pine beetle has
given me a lot of trees I can use, that is the main reason for
the big bandsaw/small sawmill, the beetles give the pine a
blueish tint. If you get the trees the first year before they
weaken and make cants to dry them out them the wood
does not lose too much strength and is good for projects.
I still prefer hardwood for the fancy stuff.
