Its about time that I let you survey my shop chalet I built 7 years ago. It is a 24 by 32 foot lower level of a 4 bedroom chalet. Other than a small utility room it is stuffed with basic, specialized tools needed for woodworking, my woodmizer bandsaw operation, wood and alot of (s)crap storage. Two garage doors allows access to outside storage and covered shelter. Some of the timberframing(new endeavor) tools may not be familiar. Since my wood never comes from the store, cutting logs into to useable planed, stock is a big exercise.
Using a brick layers scaffold unit on wheels is unique, at times I have laid out stained and dried 500 lin feet of beveled cedar siding, besides planing 12' lengths of boards. Storing green stock to dry is a necessary evil.
I hate the steel support post in the middle, I can never swing 12' stock around without it in the way. I want more tools, but I have to get rid of stuff before I get more. Some specialty items are 16" makita beam saw, makita chainsaw mortiser, and 6" makita planer.
I am building a 16 x 12' timberframe shed as my first attempt(see image of timbers). Some of the other built items include 3 test adirondack chairs(building more new design), a willow chair and a 300 lb picnic table. That all for now.
Enjoy the tour.
