Topic tags/keywords: question

I am living in Salt Lake City, Utah.
I work full time in a pharmaceutical company.
I used,a long time ago, to be a cabinet maker, back home in France.
I enjoy to work with my hands and to work with wood.
Some people even say that I am quite able with my hands and working with wood ( they probably just flatter me to obtain something from me).
I am in a period of transition not yet knowing if I am going to build a wood-shop where I live now or to move in different house with an existing shop.
Anyway I would be interested to meet with other wood workers in SLC to fellowship and to spend sometime working together.
Anyone interested?
Thank you.

-- Bert

Have you made any decision yet Bert on whether you are going to build a shop or find one?

Bert, I noticed the insulation between the rafters of your trusses.
Did you leave at least a 1 inch air space above the insulation – it looks like R12 or maybe R20 right up against the roof sheathing.

If not, you will certainly get condensation and cause possibly a mold issue in the future.

It needs ventilation, your insulation stop shown in another photo (above your bench) gives the proper spacing from the underside of the sheathing.

Bert, that’s a real nice shop. it’s a great building and will grow into a very nice shop for woodworking.

Thank you in addition to wood working I hope that this will become a place where a few of us enjoy meeting and having a beer ( a rootbeer for my LDS friends) together
