got some great news! the pizza place thats below our house/loft is going to allow me to use the ground floor patio/courtyard that we (the pizza shop and us) share, so i will have no problem now with the dust and wood chips/shavings.
thanks for all yalls inputs and ideas!
thanks God bless!
the H.O.A does not allow stuff to be hung on the balcony,
really looking at it now my only option is to build just a square made out of wood to go around the bottom on my bench and that should catch all the shavings and chips and i can vacuum it up easily, and then i will buy some handsaws and work with handsaws for now.
thanks that was very helpful, i see what you mean about power tools, the only thing though is that the saw that i have is brand new and i cant return it because its already been 30 days since i bought it.
maybe i could sell the saw, and buy some hand saws but im personally not a fan of handsaws.
also one thing i forgot to mention.
i have thought about maybe just building a square around my workbench (which is a small/medium sized workbench) to stop the dust and shavings from going everywhere, and maybe even attaching some hoses to it that go from the square to a bucket and then to my vacuum.
wow, thats a great price! i live in bluffton south Carolina and i mostly have to go to either Savannah ga or to Charleston south Carolina to get wood like rosewood, curly maple, and theres my favorite woods like zebra wood and tiger wood and also Aromatic Cedar. and i mostly get 3-5 6 foot boards each and it cost total of $400-$500 depends if they have any deals, which in my opinion is way too much money to spend on 15-20 boards. but i mostly only use that wood if someone wants me to build furniture for them and they want one of those woods, so then i just have to make the price for the furniture more expensive (which it seems like whenever i higher the price people just dont understand that different woods cost different prices).
anyway, so to get back to what you were asking, i would probably make dovetail boxes, cutting boards, or even like a kids seats or you could even make small side tables.
just some ideas!
thanks for all the replies it was a big help.
right now i think im going to do most of it in southern yellow pine with thin to medium strips/line cuts of walnut and mahogany.
im probably not going to get a chance to build it till 2017.
thanks again God bless!
