Well thank you everyone who has posted a recent shop tour. I realized I was due. As usual, the shop will never be at a stand still where the whole area is clean but, this is a golden opportunity as I am between things so here goes:
This is what I refer to as the front left corner. Home to the DC, tablesaw/router table and such. The overarm is shown in the position used to service the router table fence.
After adding some additional lighting and power (and the cyclone), some things had to move about. I was glad for the cleat system on the wall. This area now has a big open spot in the upper right corner to fill ;-)
This is the left rear corner. Home to my metal toolbox with all the usual suspects plus all my DP stuff as when standing at the main DP this box is to my back. It also hides a dozen pipe clamps in a rack on the wall behind it. The top is woefully full of junk that needs to be gone through.
Behind those horribly colored sliding doors lives an old laptop that's only purpose in life is to boot up and automatically connect to 'Radio Paradise' for Internet music in the shop.
This is the back wall. Home to a couple DP's and a small BS. The blue cabinet holds fasteners for the shop and some tool boxes for plumbing, electrical and other non-WWing tasks. The brown cabinet holds my jigs and sharpening supplies.
Continuing counter clockwise (skipping the washer and dryer nook) we get to my sheet storage (there are 15" of depth behind that front sheet of MDF) and cutoff bin. The bins are so full you can't tell where the cutoffs start and the bins end; that happens at the end of a project run. . . it'll thin out.
My very first project, a rolling worktable with storage, is still in use. That 3/16" hardboard top is made to be replaceable but after more than 3 years of banging away, its still good.
Here's the right-front corner. Home to the jointer and the fliptop stand. The small DC serves the jointer and planer via a flex hose with a quick coupler.
My ambient cleaner is one of the things that finally got moved up and out of the way. It is remote controlled and I can reach a magnetically held filter door by standing on the bench . . . nothin' but first class around here.
Here are part of the lights I recently added that now give me plenty of light. Three light circuits are on the shop panel with one light circuit on the house panel so I won't get left in the dark if all goes awry.
If you're not bored yet . . . on to a few more pics. . .
