- Our HOA finally changed the laws and is now permitting a shed. The maximum size they will allow is 8'x10' so that is what I built. I did put an 8x10 deck on it so I have a place to work. Still doesn't offer much space but my wife has taken over the garage so here I am.
- Woodworker Information
A few details about myself.
- I am 67, retired and looking to make sawdust. I don't have much experience so I see myself using this forum to get the benefit of everyone else's experience. I don't want to personally make every mistake in the book if I can avoid it.
- Columbus, Ohio
- golf, gardening, and joining discussion groups on the computer. My initial goals in woodworking are to make boxes and some cabinets. I don't have the room for a large shop, I share the garage with freezers, lawnmowers, etc, so I will probably never have a large, well equipped shop. On the other hand, I don't need much to make boxes.
