    Clean & re-arrange the shop or visa versa pic's added

    So I pulled & pushed & drug & swept & groaned then did it some more &
    un-buried the lathe Ya you guessed it I'm itching to do some turning.

    The lathe is now back where it used to be & the shapers are where the lathe was & the router table is were the shapers were & the band-saw is some where close to where it used to be.

    Before the last change I didn't have the router table & the shapers.

    Maybe pics later zzzzzzz time now.

    Yup Stu they certainly make you get creative with space. Bart we aint seen no pictures so i guess you did a fine job for a two eyed fat man but no pics no proof so i guess you have to get back on that horse and ride into the sunset and bring us back some evidence.

    Small shops sure do make you think. Gotta be creative. Sounds good Bart now it is time to make the chips fly.

    Here you'all go... Pic's

    Now I need to move my turning tools back closer to the lathe.

    Is there a way & or a particular wood needed to make Larry a cereal bowl???:ROFL::ROFL: like he would have a use for something round I need some practice Larry would be a great person to practice for making a collender to strain his spinich.

    P.S hey Larry there is no drivers license or SS card required. I know who you are or at least I think I do....

    That's a small workshop? Try working in my 6' x 10' shed with a full size lathe, drill press, scroll saw and tools. Add the fact that I am 6'5" and can only stand upright in the centre of it.

    I think they do make a 10'x12' shed that might make your situation easier & if you purchase a shed with gambrel roof you will have room for storage overhead.

    Of course I am sure you probably would build your own shed...

    Hey Bart I like your router table in the table saw. How about a pic or two of it and its mounting etc.

    Good layout by the way.
    cheers
