    My shop is heated by my outdoor wood boiler, which is nice.

    My shop goal right now is to build a new bench for woodworking. Something like the photo I attached is what I will build.

    What type of work would you be mostly doing?

    Well wood working in general I am just starting out, but I have been a licensed builder for over 25years.
    I will be making canoe paddles and fishing nets.

    Any thoughts yet on what you will use to build it? Are there local mills you could use?

    Still thinking about a mini lathe. Lots of times just need something small and just maybe I can find the floor space for one.

    I think a lathe could be enjoyable. Not sure on the size I would get? But everything I read talks about how addicting turning is. People start with a small one then very shortly want a larger model.

    I think a lathe could be a enjoyable. I wanted one for awhile and I found one 2 years ago. It has the separate motor. The motor was size for turning and the lathe stand wasn’t good shape. It came with a couple of accessories. I have yet to get set up as I have yet find a used motor for it as new motors are more money then I want spend.
    Also getting a grinder & sharpening jigs have not been in my budget. I am hoping to get going this year. I don’t have alot money in yet. I think I paid $50.00 for lathe accessories and lathe tools.

    Well, a lathe for me is now on the back burner; I have found a new rabbit hole to go down. I am really enjoying carving so far so that and some joinery projects I have on the go will be my focus for a while. Good thing cause there really isn’t any money for a lathe.

    Although I’m building a small bench I am planning on an Nicholson bench build and have had the lumber for it since one week prior to my Son being born. In addition to that I am trying to complete two bookcases for a remodel of our downstairs bedroom and a large timber framed pergola. This is going to be a fun year

    I need to come up with a better way to store sheet goods in the shop. The cart I have works well (will hold 12- 3/4 sheets of ply) just takes up way to much room.

    Ditto really, I need to build an add-on or stand alone cold storage building for a bunch of stuff including hardwood and plywood, I just don’t have the room in the garage/shop. This still may not come to the top of the list this year due to the cost and other priorities, but it has to happen sometime.

    Fun year for sure. The Nicholson bench is a really good concept.

    I made a raised wall rack for mine. It really paid off for me doing it that way.

    To have a workshop. Right now I am in a house that has been converted to a duplex that I am renting. Any small projects that I have done I do on the back patio. We are looking to move in the next few months I would like a place with a garage or shed to set up a shop in.
