I'm from Denmark, but decided to move to Sweden, just 120 kilometers from Copenhagen where i lived.
Needed a change of pace, and bulding a wood house in the middle of the forrest seemed like just the thing.
So here i am 5 yaers later with a house built from reclaimed spruce, and a brand new workshop, that i'm trying to get up and running, so i can do some relaxing woodworking instead of the hardcore construction.
I try only to buy tools i can justify, in the sense that the tool has to do a job, that would have otherwise cost me more than the tool. That means a lot of used tools, a lot of metal work, and a lot of HEAVY old school machines.
The old machines are usually cheap because people find them too space consuming, but with some heavy duty castors, even the heaviest machine can be made mobile, and made to work in a small 380 square foot shop like mine.
Since i built it myself, i could have made it bigger, but heating and material cost was a big factor, so that was what i settled on - about the size of a ok sized garage.
Hope to make some projects i can share with people here, to get the sense of community you so often miss as a woodworker. Plainly stated - most "regular" people find us REALLY boring.
Have collected a pretty big pile of really rough assorted hardwoods (500 cubic feet) of varying quality. A lot of wild cherry, some oak, beech and birch. Also a pretty decent amount of larch, from old fenceposts. I built an uninsulated shed for that
Since it's just air dried, and a lot of core wood, there are also a lot of checks in the wood, but with some lamination, and a lot of table and bandsaw work, i think i will find some beautiful pieces.
