The happiest moment since i discovered woodworking a couple of years ago was when I found a cheap, big cellar a fem minutes from my apartment to wich I could move my in-appartement workshop and finally start working properly without disturbing the neighbours. The new workshop is the bottom floor in a regular appartament building and looks like a normal apartment(in a stockholm suburb at least) with linoleum floors an regular size windows and plaster walls.
I have done my best to keep the sound from bouncing too much but yesterday when I was banging out a recess for a chest lock a neighbour from two stories above knocked on the door and asked me to stop banging because his kids woke up with every beat. The landlord is aware of what I do and the noice I make so that probably won’t be a problem but I can’t keep working when knowing that I am depriving 3 kids of their sleep. Eventualy I am will try to get a hold of another workshop but for now, does anyone have any tips on how to cuchin my bench without loosing to much oumpf when chopping? I can’t do much about the actual noice but the complaining neighbour and I both agreed that the sound traveled along the concrete so maby some sort of carpet or bitumen och whatever.
Give me all yout tips and tricks, I really can’t afford to pause woodworking right now. By the way, I have a full time job and kids at home so I can’t really do anything about the hours in the shop, evening and weekends is the only time I can actually work.
Thank you all wery much and regards fron stockholm
