My shop contains:

Ryobi 10” Table Saw
Craftsman 24” Scroll Saw
Craftsman Band Saw
Craftsman Router table
Craftsman 10” Drill press

I have attached the pictures but will update with some newer cleaner ones this weekend. I am in the process of painting the walls white and redoing most of my shop fixtures… there are some cabinets to go up and some doors to go on the ones that are up now. I built the classic woodworking bench just before our daughter was born (2 weeks ago) and have not had a chance to plane and sand the top. I rigged a wilton wood vise to work for now until i can afford a good one.

Keep your eyes peeled for updates soon. Uncle sam was generous this year so there are sure to be improvements in the next two weeks!

The ice storm was insane luckily I live right next to the university I work for and they made sure we hade the essential power and such because we house students. Much of the rest of my area is still without power 9 days after the storm. I’ll post some pics of that as well.

You have a nice shop space in which to work. You have organized your hand tools well. Your storage cabinets keep them organized and at hand when you need them. This is preferable to simply tossing them into a drawer. It looks like you have enough room to move around in there comfortably and it also looks as if you have dilemma that is common- what to do with the offcuts! :)

Congratulations on the new baby. I know that stepping into the role of being a new parent makes it difficult to find to for other things but this looks like a good “excuse” to build some things for her. After all if you are “doing something for the baby” how could your wife object to the time you are spending the in the shop!

By the way, in case you were not aware of it, anyone who moves into Kentucky must have a blood transfusion so that you “bleed blue”. The color red is, at best, merely tolerated. :)

I will be looking forward to seeing your updated pictures.

Thanks Scott Like I said there is alot of work to be done down there. The room was the coal storage in the bottom of my house so it was a mess to start but it’s coming together. The Coal shoot is great for loading in lumber but Sheet goods I still have to take in the long way. It makes me feel good to hear such positivity when it comes to that space because I’ve worked so hard to get it to that point. Thanks for making my day! I can’t wait to finish work and get back down there!
