I moved to Oregon in December 2009 after five years overseas. I'm really looking forward to having some tools and shop space again, for the first time in about six years. (and before that the "shop" was a corner of my dorm room with a mini-lathe in it.)

Back when I had space, I used to turn pens and other small items on my mini-lathe. I wanted to get into scroll saw designs but my uni classes got in the way. I am looking forward to trying out some of the scroll sawn boxes and puzzles that I have seen patterns for, and I'd like to make musical instruments too - mainly wind instruments such as whistles and Native American style flutes.

Hey, thanks Gary! It’s been quite a year too. On October 8th last year my husband got his visa to come to the US; in December we moved here; in February we bought a house and in April we moved in. A summer of job searching got me a position that started in September and gave me the ability to start stocking my shop with tools, and I’m about to start my first small furniture project.

Hi Elizabeth, I’m always searching for good ways to store lumber and stumbled on your post. I can’t help but comment on the really nice looking duct work for the dust collector and how clean your shop is. Well done. Enjoyed your projects too.
