Default New shop idea.

Anyone thought of this for a new workshop ?


Looks interesting but didn't see anything about price.

There would be several issues the worst of which is that the wall space would be unusable.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I think it would be more suited for a moon base. Would look like it would belong there

Man, if that doesn't look like something that was dreamed up by some CalState Berkeley uber-liberal! They want us all to live in gerbil habitats.

If you ever get to Utah, look at the concrete dome buildings there. They are simple to make and really strong. You begin with a mound of dirt shaped to the interior of the building. You add entrance extensions and window openings as needed. When the dirt is formed, you wrap it with re-bar, and then pour concrete over it. When the concrete dries, you go in through one of the extension openings and hog out the dirt. you end up with a free standing concrete dome with no interior supports.

It really is quite remarkable.

That's something I never would have thought of , pour cement over a dirt form . You'd wanna keep the size of your house small , otherwise you'd be digging forever lol .
Well at least I would
