I am new to woodworking, and for me it’s just a hobby. I’m spending money not making money doing it. Lol
I’ve already acquired a good bit of tools such as a table saw, miter saw and now a thickness plainer. The other day I was using my new plainer with my garage door open, and was a bit concerned with the noise. It’s very loud, and I live in one of those cookie cutter, small lot, crammed neighborhoods. You know those overpriced slab houses where everyone is in your business.
I’ve been working with wood about 2-3 days a week for a few months, and so far no one has complained. However, I don’t want to upset people with my loud tools.
My question is should I just work with my garage door closed? Will that make a huge difference in noise pollution? I ask because I live in North Carolina and it gets very hot.
What do you all do? Door closed or opened?
