There was a nicely equipped 10,000 sf shop here in an industrial park. They had dream machines that generally sat idle. They did do woodworking seminars occaisionally. You could sign up and have free run of the shop, for $18.00/hr. But if you used their wide-belt sander, the price was $36/hr. I think rent eventually forced them to close, but I felt they did not aggressively market themselves.
I’d personally prefer a situation where a bunch of woodworkers could rent personal space for our own workshops, with a common area providing access to a few machines, jointer, planer, DC and TS available to all tenants. Though, yeah, insurance would be a nightmare….
