New Wood Shop in the Making

I have been working out of a 10’x12’ shed for about five years now. Obviously, the space limitations put limits on what I could build. I am fortunate enough to have a business-minded father who has really started getting into the hobby I’ve had for years. He started catching the “wood bug” when I first gave him the idea a few months ago to find a few trees on our mountain land, cut them down, and take them to a local guy to get them sawn into boards.
The guy who cut the lumber for us told us about another local guy who was selling his grizzly planer. When we got to this guy, it turned out he had already sold all his equipment, but at the mention of some of the prices you can sell quality pieces for, I could almost see my dad’s gears start turning in his head.
To make a long story short, he wanted to turn my hobby into a small business, as my four month summer vacation is fast approaching. I already have a few orders to fill for late May, so I figure I might have a shot at this. Pictured is the new 12’x32’ room (unused, under our barn) that I intend to spend countless hours in over the summer. It is by no means complete (needs a lot more lighting and the walls could use a little work), but I have put together some of the new equipment I got.
As I said, I’m very fortunate because my dad offered to buy some new, better equipment for me to start with, and I intend on paying him back for it through the years. Helping me will be my older brother, Ryan, who has also recently caught the wood bug while making a custom-made muzzle loader. I can tell he is as excited as I am.


Thanks for looking,
Tyler

Great story, and really nice tools so far… Enjoy the time you can working with your Dad… Mine’s on the other side of the country… Hard to get projects done that way…

Spending time with Dad’s is an amazing thing. Especially woodworking:). Good looking tools too.
