It only took a year but the workshop in the trees is 99% complete. Because the woodworking I do doesn’t require a lot of tools I dedicated one end to my outdoor kitchen. I have two grills, a Traeger wood pellet grill and a Sportsman gas. If you haven’t tried a Traeger look them up on the internet.

I’m jealous. Looks like a fun place to spend time!

You call yourself a woodworker and don’t need a lot of tools, shame right on you, I can see we have some work to do. Man thats how we amass great wealth, when the wife or girlfriend want something made, you say ” well ya but I’m gonna need this and that and those and probably have to go to that new wood shop to get it.” Catch my meaning? Other than that it looks like you have lots of room to fill that place up with tools and lots of stuff you don’t need but are fun to play with. Great looking place, jockmike lol welcome to lumberjocks.

I see you’re serious about having food while you work: Grill and outdoor stove top close at hand. Enjoy the new space!

A woodworker with no tools?? That’s like a woodpecker with no peck…an inchworm who only knows metric…a magician with no rabbit….an oreo without the cream…a kyaker with no paddle…an opera singer with laryngitis…a bee with no buzzz… just ain’t right!!!

I love the open-air aspect. I’m not sure how well it would work in Mississippi, but I bet the cross-breeze is nice.

I’m with jockmike2: You ALWAYS need to buy “something” when mama has a project for you. How do you think I got my chop saw and compressor? She wanted me to help the kids put up crown molding in their house!

What a great looking place to get away from the real world and make some sawdust (even if you don’t use many tools)

Deadhead, Don’t let them get to you….saw your work and it is great! I take it you ment that you prefer to use hand tools over power tools. That’s ok with me. Just leaves more for the rest of us. BTW….What do you finish your work with?

I’m looking at those food prep areas and BBQ grills and I’m thinking, “my sawdust gets everywhere. It finds all the nooks”. Then I’m thinking, “hamburger helper”. And I’m trying to picture a BBQ in the shop. hmm.

But, I do like the new building.. reminds me a little bit of Swiss Family Robinson! Looks cool and comfortable and a place you’d want to hang out and make some shavings.

Oh man. Now you’ve got me thinking about a grill for my shop.
