Right now I have a detached garage workshop in my apartment complex. Over the next 4-7 years as I go through graduate school, my access to a workshop will be unreliable(as well as my free time but that's another issue). I am trying to transition to apartment only bait making in preparation for this. One of my bigger problems is rough cutting the dimensions (length, width, taper ect...) of out a block of wood. I mainly use balsa and basswood so nothing too hard. This is doable with handsaws but takes a while. I've though of getting a quiet scroll or bandsaw for the apartment but not sure how that would work out.
Any advice or tips from apartment baitmakers? Been building my apartment work area up and any advice would be appreciate. I hope to be able to make a post after I get my apartment workshop setup outlining best practices.
