My work shop is a 20 foot yurt. Inside I have a 4X8 gluing table and have most all basic hand and power tools as I am a carpenter also. My largest tool is a Wood Mizer LT40HD portable sawmill. Other floor tools are a 15” surface planer, two shapers, 14” band saw, 10 inch contractors table saw, dust collector, and the original Makita 8” compound miter saw. I set up work stations out side during the summer and work inside during winter. My work stations consist of saw horses (I have about thirty+) with planks or plywood on them. I always have a large stock of rough cut lumber on hand, ranging from around 4 to 10 thousand board foot of most all spices of trees available in my area. If this lumber sits for to long I will go hog wild and make lots of easy and fast furniture items and sell them real cheep. I like to make lots of small rustic tables and benches to sell at craft shows and supply a local gift shop here in Twain Harte where there are many vacation cabins.

Thanks for sharing Ron, one of these days I will have to drive up and take a look at some of your wood.

Hi Treebones,

You have a very unusual shop space. It is quite unique. This is about as natural a work space as I have seen.

I am glad that I did not miss this one.

Thanks for the post.

How warm is the yurt in the winter? How cold are your winters?

We average from sevral inches to sevral feet of snow at a time each year. As soon as the sun comes out the yurt gets warm. If I am working the cold is not bad. Winter is my favorite time of year.
