Thread: Heres my shop

  1. #1

    Heres my shop

    Thought I'd share a few shots of my newest shop of 3 years. Attached garage about 19 x 23 I think. It's a little tight, I have some moving around to assemble larger projects and if I'm going to spray on finishes, but its mine and other wise works pretty well for me. .
    Iíve been incorporating more hand tools lately and will probably replace one of the floor cabinets with a decent WW bench with face and tail vises or adapt one with vices.
    Thanks for lookin
    Dan

    Forgot to add the wifes turning room

    Aww comon Don don't be givin her ideas she already uses my(our?) drill press in the 'main' shop for pens and I cut bowl blanks on the BS

    She really likes doin pens and small bowls and is pretty good. Its kinda cool she bought some bowls at onlline charity auction and decided she wanted start turning in addition to her stitching passion.

    .... I have come to the conclusion that your type of organization is possibly the best arranged one-man shop there is. At least you know where everything is, it is very efficient and that's what counts. As long as the computer doesn't crash you've got it made .

    Thanks for showing.

    It looks "well used" and productive! I like the QSWO ottoman.
