Hi all

My shop is a 12.5’ X 27’ heated garage with 12’ high ceiling and it is exclusively dedicated to woodworking. There is a suspended platform 12’ X 8’ where I air dry my wood to interior RH. The first stage of drying is done in a separated 8’ X 15’ shed.

main tool is delta contractor saw with router table extension, got most of the usual hand power tools

Also got a chainsaw mill that I have not yet put to real work, can’t wait for that

I will shortly set a dust collection system, and buy a jointer and a planner

will post pictures of the shop…

Nice sized shop! I like the ceiling height.

Sounds like a nice size shop. Heated is good, especially living in Canada. I will be watching for the pics of the shop and some projects.

thanks all for the welcome, I don’t believe I have taken any picture of my past projects, but my girlfriend wants a new bedroom furniture set for us and the kids, so will take picture of these once done.

Man, your in heaven! Did you say chain saw mill? There are tons of good places to get wood for free, I hear sometimes people will pay you to cut and haul the wood away for them! I cant wait to see the new shop you build with all that premium lumber coming your way in just a few short years…

Hi Martin,

Your shop sounds like a place I could work in. I, too, am looking forward to seeing some pictures.

I have always wanted to have the ability to mill and dry my own lumber but I simply don’t have the room. About five years ago I had to have two ash and a cherry tree taken down but couldn’t find anyone to mill them for me. Seeing that cherry go for firewood really hurt.
