For those in the Pac NW there is a woodshop that is available for rental time as well as teaching. It would be nice to have something like this so that you would have access to tools that would be needed if you dont currently own them. It is also a good place to learn different toosl and try them out prior to purchase.

This is a pretty cool idea. A fellow I knew had this kind of business as his ideal retirement. It is good to see it can actually work.

I also think this is a good idea. A lot of us old guys, after retirement, downsize and have a smaller shop, or no shop, and need a place to go and just puts-around and talk with other woodworkers. LumberJocks comes close to meeting this, but it is not the same. Here in Minnesota, in the Summer, I have a very small shop (4 X 10). I can do a lot of basic woodworking, and when I need to use the big stuff I drive about 10 miles to the retirement center (in Saint Clowd) where there is a good woodworking shop ($66 for the Summer). This will be my second Winter in Arkansas (Fort Smith) and I do not have a shop and will be looking for a woodshop to go to.
