My “shop” here in my new place. It is climate controlled, is set up for dust collection, and is about 8×8’. I use it for planning, finish work, and smaller cuts. I am still getting it arranged and finding how to better utilize it.

More to follow…

Wow! That’s dedication! Are there any shared workshop spaces in your area?

80% is shared with two vehicles!

With Ohio winters you’re just programmed to park in the garage all year so leaving the cars outside for space isn’t an option. That’s really the deal so I really shouldn’t blame the misses but I will.

Make the best use of the space you have.

That sucks having to be quiet at lest there should be a time span that allows noise at a reasonable level .
Your shop looks very neat and you have a nice collection of tools and always remember tools do not a Craftsman make but your shills are showing in your fine projects .
Enjoy what you have and maybe there is a better workshop in your future .

Drew,

I was talking about rental spaces that are shared by woodworkers. If you’re in a large town it might be a possibility? Might also be a cost you can’t afford?

Sorry Doc, I forgot to reply to your idea. I’ve only found one shared workshop in the Cleveland area. It’s called http://soulcraftwoodshop.com/ but haven’t really looked into it as I am still getting by here. It’s about 12 miles from my house.

I would think there would be other people in the area like me. I wish I could find a club or something. I do frequent a Woodcraft about 35 miles away. I also go to place about 10 miles away that has a small Rockler store. 75% of the time I go just to converse with others and try to build relationships with fellow woodworkers and increase my knowledge. Hopefully something will come together eventually.

I recently stumble upon a guy that has a huge warehouse http://www.metro-hardwoods.com/ full of trees that have been downed by the City or collected after storms. He has more stock than he could mill in a lifetime and am working on a bartering deal with him. He is a one man show and is overwhelmed. I proposed that I could help him for several hours here and there in return for use of his large scale equipment and maybe lumber. This would be for general milling and the basic dimensions needed. I could then just make my small cuts here with no real worries. It’s a thought and still under consideration.

The cost of sharing would not really hurt the wallet but my frugel nature would tested!!!!

Thanks for sharing the shop and condo rules. As I look ahead to a small space in AZ I had not anticipated some of those problems, just downsizing as much as possible to a wall of the garage. talk about not putting the car out into the heat while you work. I’m in PA and used to various temps. Moving would be towards the kids and grandkids. So your space and ideas were a help.
Thanks.
