I spend a lot of time cleaning tools with oil.

Here in Houston, there is no getting away from the humidity. Makes everything about woodworking more difficult.

I hear stories of people using particle board and MDF for work benches and I just have to wonder how nice it would be to live in a place where these materials are not affected by our weather here by the coast.

Yeah, a dehumidifier is not an option for high humidity areas. An air conditioned space is the real solution. I would install one in a heart beat but I have to deal with an HOA that will not allow it.

Good thing I am moving to a 5 acre lot soon!
