    My Shop
    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.
    So now I am in the garage and trying to get things organized. The shed has become an overflow catch all.
  • Woodworker Information
    A few details about myself.
    Biography
    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.
    Location
    Columbus, Ohio
    Interests
    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.
    Favorite Router
    Craftsman and Bosch
    Woodworking Experience (Years)
    a few
    First Name
    Bill
    Country
    United States
