    Re: Show off Your Shop

    OK u peoples has made me so jealous of yalls shops. I have to say there are some very impressive , I think Mikes is #1 , I wouldnt just give the left one , Id give both to have a shop like that. Not to say that the rest are really nice. Im stuck in a 12 x 20 shop I built in 1992. At that time I thought it would be all I would ever need , WRONG . I have so much chit in my shop I have to keep my table saw in the garage and roll it out when I want to use it. Bottom line is im proud for yall. So really nice shops and pics bein shown. I do have a question for Leo , what is that red machine with wheels on it? Cultivator , Roto tiller ? We dont have those here in the south , I do have a tiller that will beat the livin piss out o u whilst u use it.

    Leo:
    Just so's ya don't all think that a nice big well equipped shop - (at least to me) - is something that just happens - I had other not so big and not so well equipped first.

    This is an old one -- about 1970 - really my Dad's but I did stuff there too. Not really a woodworking shop either.

    This is about 1986. I had this one in the cellar from 1983-2002 It was all I could afford. I made a lot of stuff in there - nothing great - but lots of stuff. In my cellar - I had a Radial Arm Saw - and on old Walker Turner drill press. That's about is. I also had a cheap jig saw, and a cheap hand drill.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In 2002 at 48 years old. - I re mortgaged my house in order to build the shop I have now. From 2002 - till present, I have working to equip it, build benches, and to learn woodworking.

    I feel that I am starting to "get it". I am enjoying the process of learning.

    Just want to make clear -- I did NOT start out with the shop I have now.

    When we were first married, and in an apartment - I used a sun porch - then an attic space.

    Re: Show off Your Shop

    mduren:
    These pictures are a couple years old and taken when the sun was shining and the shop was clean.......

    The building is 24' X 28' with one entry door and one 16' X 9' overhead door. Heat is in floor radiant - I have a hot water tank in the house basement converted to a boiler for hot water. I also put a half bath in so this old man doesn't have to run to the house for "comfort". I walled off the area by the entry door and half bath for my office. The shop is big enough but I need another one just for storage. It is hard to throw away all those good pieces...not to mention the garden hose reels in the winter (penalty for having a heated shop).


    I have since moved the radial saw to where the miter saw was. I don't use the miter saw so now it is stored inside the radial saw base.

















    Entry, office and half bath.

    My shop.



    For some reason I cannot get theother pictures posted. I will try again later.

    The waterstone grinder with a plywood cover for the stone. The grinder is built from an old industrial washing machine.

    The thing hanging from the ceiling is a toolbox which I finished yesterday. The toolbox will hold chainsaw and helmet and tools and lifting tongs. It fits the front of the tractor.


    The home-made tablesaw and the dirty bench in the corner.


    The octagonal cover keeps the chopping block clean so that it does not dull the axe. The lathe is a cheap chineese one which I hope to replace with a better one once I get the better one rebuilt.

    I wish I could afford to buy a planer and a jointer but for now this is it....

    Re: Show off Your Shop

    Cody:
    Well, here's mine. I would do a lot of things differently if I could have a do-over but I enjoy my shop, nonetheless. I placed 120 vac outlets every 4' along the walls at 4' high but I didn't install any 240 vac outlets until I needed them for tools. That's one thing I would do differently...place the 240 outlets side-by-side with the 120 vac ones.

    First, a sketch of the layout.



    Looking down the left side from just inside the entry door. The Cobalt air compressor on the left is one of the tools I want to move outside the main shop when I get the extension built.



    A sheet sandpaper holder on the end of the base cabinet top.



    A hand tool wall cabinet...screwdrivers, chisels, files, rasps, etc.



    My 10" Craftsman miter saw...a gift from LOML at Christmas about 10 years ago. The plywood "box" on the wall behind the saw is an extension of the 6" PVC duct for dust collection. I reduced the depth of the box to 4" for a couple inches more room for the saw. The cabinet base the saw sits on is also a box with a perforated top for sort of a down-draft table. It works okay, not great.



    Some of my clamps (most of the bar clamps are in use) saws and the benchtop mortiser. The mortiser is normally stored underneath in the base cabinet when not in use.



    The $89 Ryobi OSS, battery charging station, finish cabinet (what a mess). There's also a junk joinery mechanism hanging on the wall... a Kreg K-3 system.



    My bench...covered up as usual. you can also see the Griz GO586 jointer that is just in front of the bench.



    The back wall showing the upper cabs, assorted tools and stuff on perforated hardboard and the DeWalt 733 planer I haven't decided what to do with yet. The base cabinet is open underneath and there's a DW 5500 watt generator and some other stuff under there. I plan to remove the countertop and put a door where that perforated hardboard is now when I get the addition on back built.



    The Jet wet grinder is mounted to a base that sits on top of a rolling cabinet. I move it around as it gets in the way. The new-to-me scroll saw has not yet found a home, either.


    In the right, back corner is the Oneida cyclone. You can also see my drill press, a scrap wood bin and the drill cabinet on the wall. Therer are BS blades hanging below the wall cabinet.






    Moving forward along the R/H wall, the GO513 band saw. Also, some long pipe clamps stacked against the wall.



    My newest too, the Grizzly 15" planer.



    Next is my grinder and lathe tools. The cabinet for the grinder is the base off of a 12" Craftsman band saw that I used to own. I closed it in and added a couple of drawers to hold turning stuff.



    My first and only lathe so far...the Jet 1236. I still have the sanding disk and table mounted on it. It also has ~300 lbs of sand holding it stationary.



    On the wall above the lathe and grinder is lumber storage although access is hindered by the overhead door rails. I also plan to replace that door with two 4' hinged doors.



    Moving back to the center of the shop, facing the door, this is my Grizzly 1023SLX tablesaw with extension and outfeed tables.



    Just past the TS outfeed is my assembly/finishing table. I salvaged the legs and base from one my son found that had a rotted/peeling particle board/laminate top. I replaced the 3/4" Melamine outfeed table on my TS and used the old outfeed (flipped over) as a top for the assembly table. Those rolls of brown paper at the Borg are a bit too long but I cut them to size on my miter saw to fit the table width.



    Finally, inside the overhead door is where I usually park the 4' rolling sheet storage cart. To the right of it towards the entry door is the sink cabinet, which is a real lifesaver. It's easily worth the space it consumes.



    That's it, the grand tour. Over the next few months, I hope to do
    some major alterations, including adding more lights, adding an addition on the back and changing the overhead door to two hinged ones...that is if I can quit woodworking long enough to work on it. If i get them done, i'll post some pics showing the work. Until then, thanks for looking.
