Time for an update. I no longer work in software development. Circumstances have given me a lot more time in the shop which has been great. I still do all my work out of a 1 car garage so I've had to get very creative in the way I set things up and store my tools. I measured my shop, 234.75 square feet including lumber storage. I've surprised myself with the size of some of the projects I've been able to complete even in that limited space.

I hate using pre-surfaced wood like you get at Home Depot. I love using the planer and jointer. I'm also fast becoming a fan of cabinetmaker's rasps.

I got my start with picture frames but now I mostly dabble in furniture and whatever else people are willing to pay me to make.

Can't beat the smell of sawdust in the morning...afternoon...whenever

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Welcome to LJ – If you have got limited space, and I think you have a planer/thicknesser, I would fore-go the joiner and spend your money on some reasonable hand planes (# 7 (Low Angle), 4, Block (LA) with different blades) – using them will teach you more about wood, than a machine ever can, they will undertake jobs your joiner (machine) cannot do. and they should last you a life time and they take up no space – and will definitely compliment that new work bench you are thinking about building.

Whatever you decide – good luck and more importantly enjoy your time woodworking – Tony
