BenchDawg's Workshop BenchDawg's Workshop  

Tulsa, OK
United States

Like a lot of Jocks, I have to share space with the car so I’ve delegated most of my working space into one bay of the garage.

I have a couple of old Craftsman Table saws. One was my Grandfather’s and the other I picked up along the way. Both models are made by King-Seeley for Craftsman in the early 50’s. They are both great old saws.

I have a Craftsman Jointer, vintage mid 30’s, also a great runner. An inherited Craftsman Band saw (early 70’s?). A Dewalt Planer and a tired old belt sander. Those, and an assortment of small power and hand tools make up the shop.

I built the workbench in the center that I use for my various projects. Mrs. Dawg has her bench for her projects in as well. With the doors rolled up it get’s good light and makes a pretty good workshop.

I tamed the big challenge of lumber storage by making some plywood racks that hang from the rafters above the car bay. They are up enough that I do not bonk my head and I can still pull the steel beast in with plenty of clearance.

Dawg, i’d say that looks like a nice shop and it looks like you have enough tools to make a lot of stuff. You seem to have more than enough room and I sure do like those french doors and window. All and all I would say that you are a lucky man so congratulations.

You certainly have put together a pretty nice looking shop. I would love to be able to get this much natural light into my shop! Thanks for the tour. I enjoyed taking a look at your shop.
