    My Workshop

    Hi,

    Here's a pic of my workshop. It's pretty small - 11' x 18', but I've managed to fit a table saw, jointer, planer, band saw, drill press, dust collector, cull bin and router table into it and still leave myself enough room to move around and work pretty comfortably. The workshop is 1/2 of what used to be a 2 car garage so with the overhead garage door open in good weather it makes the shop seem a lot bigger.



    Here's a link to a few more pictures of my workshop:

    Rick,
    Look very fundtional and a great use of space. Where do you assemble your projects.

    Rick,

    Nice shop

    Good use of the space you have, and a nice collection of tools.

    How do you like the Ridgid Planer and Jointer? I was thinking of getting those soon. I haven't heard anything bad about either of them except maybe that the jointer table height is a little low.


    nice use of the space you have.

    Hi Dan,

    This is the view from the 'other' end of my workshop.



    I have a small setup table where I do all of my gluing and assembly. I haven't had any problems yet with anything I've built even though it is a tight squeeze at times.

    Hi Chris,

    I have been very happy with both the jointer and the planer. Both have been solid and dead-on accurate right out of the box. I have no problems in recommending both machines!

    I haven't noticed any height problems at all with the jointer - I've never found it to be too low at all.
