Setting up new woodworking shop in small space - and have been dreaming about it and planning it in my head for years.
I was glad to find a site like Lumberjocks. I've lurked here reading tool reviews, tips, and have altered many of my plans based on ideas I found here.
After setting up shop, I intend to build Aspen log furniture and furnish the house with it. It's a great look especially for living here in beautiful Colorado.
