What's a good way to do your woodwork on uneven grass? A large temporary platform? is that even a thing?

Yes, it is called a table
>>
>>940302
No table big enough to fit a tablesaw, router table, jointer, bandsaw, planer, etc
>>
>>940303
build one

Lots of saw horses. Re-arrange them to suit your cuts and projects as needed, put plywood across them if a flat surface is needed. It still won't be good for precision wood crafting (eg cabinetry) but it'll be fine for general building shit.

That's a great idea, and I'll use that, but I would still like a solid foundation to stand on. My last resort would be to basically build a shed floor where I work.

just convert a room of your house.

Not at any real hobbyist level. If you're using hand power tools yeah sure but otherwise no, not really.

Example, the weight of a jointer would sink and topple probably. Not to mention corrosion.

um, diy a lawn roller? but really as long as it is flat/good footing, you can adjust worktable to be level you don't need to be standing level.

But I hate sawdust inside
>>
A shed is useful and the best solution. Don't consider a shed a last resort, consider it highly desirable! If you are too OCD to have sawdust in the house, build a shed if you cannot use or do not have a garage. If you want a solid floor you need a room or a shed, end of story.

You can make excellent sawdust collection systems if you choose to work indoors. A large shop vac (put a panty hose leg over the filter for easy cleaning) makes cleanup easy. I would do this in a shed too.

Working outdoors is only practical if you are willing to move all your equipment each time.

You can get a table dead level on grass by using welding stands instead of saw horses. Most non-welders do not know their wonderfulness, but they are highly stable (designed to hold heavy steel pipe/beam/plate) and you can buy folding units if you want an even smaller footprint.

Example:

I have four and want more. Use a digital level and you can adjust the screws precisely.
You can buy stands at your local welding supplier too.

If your work environment sucks you won't make anything.
