Hi all you wonderful lumber jocks! My wife and I got a place of out own in a trailer park , I have a one car , car port with a small shed on the back to work with for now as my wood shop. I will be adding side walls to the car port soon and will be able to put all my shop tools under it. As for now I have to cover some of my big shop tools up with boat tarps I have to keep them from rusting. I am starting a home business and have a good amount of special orders of small wood projects people have asked me to make them and money is starting to come in from my small projects I make. I plan on adding knife sharpening to my home business as well as I did good in the past with sharpening tools for people at my home I sell my stuff at the Saturday market in Hillsboro Or in the summer months and do good with it.

Hi again 4 years later Nov 2016.
I have added walls to extend out my car port and much more room and dryer for my tools.
I went back out to trucking hauling goods in the 5 western States for a while.
Home time every 2 weeks on Sat @ Sunday. I will still be busy filling wood shop orders on my weekend at home.
As I have established some business with clients that tell others about me. Busy making different shape coffee coasters today that my wife will sell on line.

Jeffrey, this looks like a pretty nice set up to me as well. I would love to have this much natural light in my shop. And you certainly do not have any problems with dust control with your table saw and planer set up. :) I will generally get yelled at for “tracking sawdust in the house” if there is even a hint of sawdust on the floor of my shop if I don’t get it cleaned up when I am finished for the day.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed taking a look at your shop.

I enjoyed the tour. It doesn’t have to be spectacular to give you pleasure. Plus, you will have EARNED that detached shop.

Thanks guys ! I do make big messes out in my shop when I rout out boards with my vice holding them . There is a door from my shop to the kitchen and when My wife opens the door and to much sawdust title waves into the dining room when she opens the door to talk to me so she don’t spook me when I am scroll sawing , she will say ok time to vacume and sweep up your wood shop before your done for the day. I do like it that she dosn’t come up behind me as I might loose a finger while scroll sawing and there is a door to the kitchen where I get a warning with the door noise she is comming out to talk to me about somtheing. I do love all the natural light my shop gives with lots of big windows I gess I am spoiled in that way I plan on adding a full size band saw to my work shop in the front porch soon. My wife dosn’t seam to mind me having the front pourch as a wood shop for the small custom orders I make for people. Thanks again for taking the time to lool at my shop and a littlle what I do.

Jeff, this sounds like a perfect opportunity to get some tools! I like to walk into the house covered in sawdust then claim, “well, honey, if I had a CYCLONE dust collector, this wouldn’t happen”. I’m really impressed with your shop and I’m glad you are making that dust I’m trying to wager.

I turned my spare bedroom into a wood shop for a few weeks and made my wife a cedar computer table with two side wings that are not attached. When I ran my little table saw in that room to rip a few cuts it set the fire alarm off. The room has a 15 ’ ceiling. I got my ladder and took the alarm down and opened a window and finished my work . Talk about a room to clean full of saw dust all over the carpet. After I get the room clean and the desk is complete my wife wants that room as her sewing room so I will be building cedar shelfs for her stuff to go on.
