I started woodturning three years ago, and have thoroughly enjoyed it. After one year of turning in the unheated garage, I moved into a small 6x8' room in the basement. This worked, but it added dust to the house. Further, my chopsaw and bandsaw remained in the garage, due to space limitations. This led to a lot of walking through the house, changing shoes each time (trying to keep the shavings out of the main house).
We've decided to add a room in the garage for my turning. It won't be huge, but it'll be better than 6 x 8!
