Do you build more projects in the Summer or Winter?

Do you have a heated shop?  An air-conditioned one?  Do you work in your garage or outside?  The type of shop you have probably helps to determine when you build your projects the most... so what is it?  Summer or Winter (and everything in between)?

i have a shop seperate from the house, just built it last year. i will have heat and ac this year. i build year round pretty much, maybe a little less in the warmer weather, just too much to do outside.
I have a garage (24 x 24) that is heated and will never see cars parked in it on my watch.  I do woodworking and also large sewing projects year-round.  Gets kind of hot in the summer, but I deal with it.  I'm a nubie when it comes to woodworking but I've built a lumber cart, work bench, large saw horses, wall cabinets, a book-case, several quilt racks, several bird and squirril feeders.  Want to get into planing my own stock from rough-sawn lumber as I now have a 12" planer.  Could work out there 24/7......
Nice size garage !!!~and a busy girl  too !!!!!
I've been retired for a few years and this is a real blast learning to use the shop tools which I've accumulated from auctions, yard sales, estate sales, and whatever......Yes, I DO stay busy.  Just wish the learning curves weren't so steep but at least I AM learning............
So when do we see the projects  and make sure the Kreg  jig is in the picture.
Here's part of the Christmas projects - goofed and didn't include the Kreg jig in the picture......

"Thankew" - projects are simple, but I'm in the learning curve right now.

Keep it up and you have to open a store. Good luck to ya


My shop is a ghost town in the summer. With the temperature at times reaching 120 degrees in my shop during the summer I tend to stay away from that hell hole.
like jim, i live in northern michigan. heat my shop by barrel stove.  most my work is done  in the winter

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
