And finally if you have, or look after, youngsters with an interest in
woodworking, I can thoroughly recommend the following pages:
http://www.bedroomfurniturespot.com/woodcraft-for-kids where projects are grouped by their suitability for different age groups and also http://www.alansfactoryoutlet.com/woodworking-resources-for-the-beginning-builder/ where the author provides some useful information for beginners to woodworking as well as links to other useful sites.
There is also an article here about the advantages of pressure treatment for sheds, but the advantages also apply to other outdoor projects.
Before it was realised how dangerous it was, asbestos was used widely in construction. If you have in the past been involved in working with asbestos then you should check out the website at www.asbestos.com . This is an American site with a bias towards litigation but has quite extensive information. In the UK, information can also be found at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/mesothelioma/. Both sites give advice on mesothelioma, a type of cancer that develops in the lining that covers the outer surface of some of the body's organs and is usually linked to asbestos exposure: often being diagnosed many years after the exposure.
Do you have a lot of sawdust to dispose of? Did you know you can get stoves designed specifically to burn sawdust (and heat your workshop at the same time)?
Have a look at the WorkshopStoves website to see what is available.
