I'm a graphic/web designer in profession and I got into woodworking few years ago.
As a designer I love to CAD everything down to its detail before I build it. So having no space to work and only a 5x5 feet storage room, I did everything from there.
That project was called "the smallest workshop in the world", and later as Fine Woodworking magazine rename it in its article featured in there Tools & Shops annual issue (Dec.2010) "Think your shop is small? Think Again". ( http://www.finewoodworking.com/item/31929/our-tools-shops-issue-rolls-to-the-printer )

Also my workshop set-up project was feature in the...
"Best Workshops" book from the editors of Fine Woodworking magazine (http://www.finewoodworking.com/item/106786/update-best-workshops-from-the-editors-of-fine-woodworking)
and...
"Extraordinary Projects for Ordinary People" book from instructables.com ( http://www.amazon.com/Extraordinary-Projects-Ordinary-People-Do-It-Yourself/dp/1620870576 )

If you like to follow the progress of My Workshop, you can do that in this "HERE": http://lumberjocks.com/steliart/blog/29484 in My Workshop blog.

Welcome. You have found the right place for woodworking. A great group of people willing to help. Looking forward to see your projects and comments. Work safe in the shop and don’t forget to use pushsticks.

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

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself just about 2 years ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…
I apologize for the late welcome but I am currently serving overseas and don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands.

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

Wisty
