- Size: sq. ft.
My work shop is the lower level of our house. Access is only from the exterior and since we live in Grenada we do not have any heating/cooling systems to be troubled by sawdust.

The central dust control keeps the shop clean. As well as some interior lumber storage I have outdoor storage where I currenly have about 3000 board feet of West Indian mahogany and 1000 board feet of local white cedar air drying. Generally I let the lumber dry for at least a year before I work with it. I use a moisture meter to monitor it all. I have a shop built router table with a 3 1/4 PC router, a midi Jet lath, Delta 15 inch planner, Delta 6 inch jointer, and a shop built router milling machine (ShopNotes magazine) which has proved to be very handy for all sorts of turning tasks. My wife does stained glass work and she has a 250 sq. ft. studio for that We frequently incorporate leaded glass or stained glass work into some of our furniture pieces. www.grenadabarefootwoodworker.com
