    My playground

    this is a work in progress. i have a 35X50 out bldg next to my house thats only purpose in life is for my woodworking (no wife boxes).

    pic 1- i have 2 48x96 work tables with drill press, chop box, band saw, edge sander, and jointer close at hand. lumber and sheet good storage is just out of picture to left.

    pic 2- looking away from the left table in pic 1 i have a table saw w/ slider attachment and my wide belt to the right of the tablesaw. i have 3 9'x8' doors in the shop one to the left of the table saw and 2 to the right of the wide belt.

    pic 3- the "big three" as i call them because of the space they need for infeed and outfeed. wide belt, planer, molder. in the far corner of the bldg. behind the plane in the pic i have my 8'x8' semi-dust free office. the door in the pic on the far right is my bathroom. behind the book case i have my dust collector and shaper.

    pic4- the "big picture" with my butt to the bathroom door. you can't see it but h have a 60 gal compressor to my left by the bathroom.

    in the middle of the shop when i took the pictures was a mahogany book case i was finishing up for a friend. i still have to add an edgebander, lathe, and a vacuume bag set up. i have everthing on the dust collector and would like to add some of the hanging filters. the have 10' clearance on the outside walls and in the center i have 15' so i can do my stairs in the shop with hand rail and have room.

    I'm still working on getting it set up the way i want. i have wanted a shop that was not so cluttered for a long time. but i think i am pointed in the right direction. i just hope it is big enough by the time i add my toys to still work in.

    Are you trying to upload attachments via the paperclip icon at the top of the "Message" window when posting?

    or are you linking to pictures on another site?

    give us a bit more info and we'll see if we can help you out.
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    Doug, I just checked and everything looks on order in your user account. You might try logging off the site, deleting any FamilyWoodworking.org cookies, and try logging back in again. If that doesn't work, e-mail the pics to me and I'll see if I can figure out what's going on.

    Here are the pics. I had to increase the compression on the fourth one, as it was a bit bigger than the 150 KB limit.

    Even with the one oversized picture, the other three should have uploaded fine for you. You mentioned in your e-mail that it seemed to be timing out on you. Are you on a dial-up connection by any chance? Other than that, you've got me stumped.

    Great-looking shop, by the way.

    OOOOOH, Nice!! The wall unit... is it one you built or one that you are refinishing? Nice selection of toys, I mean tools One last question. Is this your hobby or business?
