    My Shop
    I am trying to optimize a 12' x 16' Garage for use as both a warehouse and a wood shop.

    Lack of space doesn't allow me to leave a table set up in a way that I can just walk up to it and use it when the urge hits. Once or twice a week I set up one of my 3 tables in the driveway (if it isn't raining!) and make some sawdust.Ultimately I intend to build an outbuilding to serve as the shop.

    I want to get a thickness planer, belt sander, band saw and a lathe. Given that a sander and lathe are on the list, I have some interest in a Shop Smith type multi function unit, though I understand they are weak performers as a lathe.
  • Woodworker Information
    A few details about myself.
    I have spent most my life working in Computer Networking and Telecommunications.

    During my school years, three years of metal shop with a semester each of woodshop, plastics and electronics gave me a 'foundation' in the 'trades & crafts'.

    After high school a hitch in the US Navy led me further into the realm of communications & electronics.

    In the spring of 2011 I moved my 'home office' from a hotel in downtown Los Angeles to my brother's house in Arlington, WA. This relocation allowed me to begin the process of setting up a 'crafting shop' of my own design and for my own purposes.
    Arlington, WA
    For years, the website I visit most often has been Wikipedia. Over the last six months, I shifted to spending more time here than the rest of the leisure sites combined.
    Favorite Router
    I have 2 Millers Falls 7900's and a Craftsman 135.17508 electric routers that I use off and on.

    15 minutes with an electric router approaches my daily limit for noise, so I have built up a collection of planes that let me do many of the cuts that are also frequently done with routers.
    Woodworking Experience (Years)
    Off and on 30+ years. Intense and Focused - 1 year.
